Re: Hmmm indead

Actually MSR's do indeed work and work well, go do some homework into the research done by Oak-Ridge, where they had an MSR running for several years, had one incident where a fast breeder would have melted down and the MSR peaked power output then shut itself down if i remember correctly.

The main reason we have the Fast Breeder legacy still in place today is lobbying, nothing to do with operational capability or safety. Think of all the large multi-billion companies with massive investments in fast breeder reactors, then think ford Pinta and the its cheaper to pay the legal costs than do a recall. Then if you still think its due to capacity or safety i have a very nice bridge you may be interested in!
