Link to a thorium article in Nature (15/10/21 12:00:29)
It seems We have a long way to go.
Sometime around 1967 I read about thorium-U233 as reactor fuel in a Soviet book (English) on nuclear technologies (loaned it in the local library). Fascinating, thin little book.
AFAIK there was one nuclear bomb test with U233 as the fuel.
There is a lot to be done in trying out technologies. First and foremost, I'd think, would be the construction of modular reactors that could be dismantled safely and cheaply after decommission.
