Highly toxic radioactive waste goes in, and out comes tons of cheap energy

But Are They Safe?

Using Water as Coolant is a Safety Hazard

Solution: Use Non-Water Coolant

The salt in MSR reactors turns into rock hard solids when cooled which cannot spread radioactive contamination far. Contamination will always be limited to the power-plant site.

It is a Win-Win

Material usage of different power sources excluding Uranium ore mining

Should We Go All Out Nuclear Then?
