MSRE: Alvin Weinberg's Molten Salt Reactor Experiment – "Th" Thorium Documentary

Oak Ridge National Laboratory was the home of Alvin Weinberg’s Molten Salt Reactor Experiment. The MSRE proved that a fission reaction in molten fluoride salts could be contained in Hastelloy-N, and that a molten salt fueled reactor concept was viable. Two prototype molten salt reactors were successfully designed, constructed and operated at ORNL. The Aircraft…
