"The American ‘skunkworks’ start-up ThorCon, established by shipping pioneer Jack Devanney, announced that Martingale, Inc has completed the pre-conceptual design of itsThorCon Molten Salt Reactor and that further design work is underway at a rapid pace. ThorCon’s MSR is a completely modernised version of Oak Ridge’s successful Molten Salt Reactor Experiment, part-fuelled by thorium and designed, from the ground up, for mass production in shipyards."
If this is true, we have in ThorCon a serious MSR backed by deep pockets. If their design has already moved past the precopnceptual stage, and they are examining the whers and hows of manufacture, they are very serious. The word "skunkworks " is important. So far we have an internet presence, to which is attached the names of several credible people, nut nothing we can look at or touch. I awate further evidence of a tangible reality with anticipation.
