What do you think about thorium as a new fuel for the powerplants? Since it’s alot more common and alot more secure to use thorium as fuel. This is because when you create uranium-235 out of the thorium and then cleaves the core it creates alot less heavy substances that has a long half-life that is the reason for the massive amount of time that the nuclear waste has to be stored. Since you can use every little atom you don’t need as much thorium as uranium when thorium is used as a fuel. (Facts from a swedish science-paper).
