Looked really futuristic.
having it underground would open some other interesting options.
at least for the region i live in.

Nice video. Any idea what the secondary fluid used in the turbine will be?

I suppose we don't have to worry about clad failure if the fuel is a liquid pumped through the reactor.

Jack, During a conversation with some of my fellow Molten Salt conspirators yesterday evening, Helium. CO2, and supercritical water were all mentioned.

Do you know what the power output of a plant the size of the one mentioned in this video would be?

Robw, I think it could be as large as 1 GW.
