Summary

Thorium is a mildly radioactive metal which can be turned into nuclear fuel inside The Thorium Reactor, and then fissioned to produce both energy and valuable isotopes. Different from today's reactors in almost every aspect. Different fuel. Different coolant. Different approach to safety. Different approach to fissile security. What goes into the reactor is different. What comes out is different.
