"This would inhibit the development of volcanism," he said. The onset and persistence of volcanic eruptions also depends on how much heat is generated in the crust, which is closer to the surface than the mantle. If there are more radioactive materials, such as thorium or radium, inside of the crust, they emit ...

Thorium a lustrous radioactive element with the highest temperature of 3,000 degrees has been acknowledged as an interesting resource on the planet. The global thorium market was boosted with the rising applications in the production of nuclear fuel. Several demonstrations have been carried out to ...
Thorium Premiere New Song & Video For "Maniac" From Upcoming New Album "Blasphemy Awakes". posted Mar 10, 2018 at 3:13 AM by LugalKiEn. (0 Comments). Scandinavian death metallers Thorium premiere a new song and video entitled "Maniac", taken from their upcoming new album "Blasphemy Awakes", which ...
In a recent issue of Science, a research team led by Dirk Hoffmann of the Max Planck Institute of Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, reported a surprising finding. When they used uranium-thorium dating to determine the age of cave art from several locations in Spain, the paintings turned out to ...
Thorium Molten Salt Reactors (LIFTRS) are the answer. These new reactors are 100 percent safe, use 97 percent of the nuclear energy, can be made small, trailer truck size, have little benign waste, do not need emergency water cooling like ocean, river or lakes, they can desalinate water and produce ...
The irradiation of two fuel pins containing thorium-plutonium oxide pellets is under way at the Halden research reactor in Norway. Thor Energy - which is leading the consortium carrying out the research - said this is the start of the third phase of a five-year trial-operation of thorium-based nuclear fuels.
Thorium reactors have long been proposed as a cleaner, safer alternative to conventional nuclear energy, and now a new Russian study has added another potential benefit to the mix. Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) propose a new thorium reactor design that can burn weapons-grade ...
Thorium has long held promise for “safer” nuclear power. A slightly radioactive element, it transforms into fissionable U-233 when hit by high-energy neutrons. But after use, U-233 creates fewer long-lived radioactive waste products than the conventional U-235 now used in nuclear power plants.
Die gebruikt geen water als koelmiddel maar gesmolten zout en thorium in plaats van uranium als splijtstof. Deze technologie ligt al vijftig jaar op de plank. Gesmolten-zout reactoren zijn veel veiliger dan de huidige generatie kernreactoren: bij problemen stopt de kernsplijting vanzelf. Rampen als in ...
