TerraPower Nuclear Technology as discussed earlier has tremendous potential and is a fourth generation nuclear reactor technology.

Its a form of Breeder Reactor that not only produces fissile material from abundant fertile material (U238) but also burns it in the same cycle with out requiring any reprocessing.


1. Technology cannot be exploited to build nuclear weapons.
2. Far more abundant and readily available raw material.
3. Requires no human interference to manage the reactor.
4. Breeder bed reprocessing not required.

May be nuclear power will one day emerge as the panacea to this ailing energy hungry world!
