The Molten-Salt Reactor Experiment - video

Postby hanelyp » Mon May 07, 2018 7:33 pm

This film was produced in 1969 by Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the United States Atomic Energy Commission to inform the public regarding the history, technology, and milestones of the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment (MSRE). Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Molten Salt Reactor Experiment was designed to assess the viability of liquid fuel reactor technologies for use in commercial power generation. It operated from January 1965 through December 1969, logging more than 13,000 hours at full power during its four-year run. The MSRE was designated a nuclear historic landmark in 1994.

The daylight is uncomfortably bright for eyes so long in the dark.

I enjoy watching those old school documentaries about the post WW2 technology development. It feels different than today. It feels like people really knew what they were doing.


It inspires confidence.
