GorT got the following piece of mail and I’ve been too busy to post on it until now. Unfortunately, GorT misread some units on information about the LFTR technology and DJ MC Nuke caught it:
a thorium fueled liquid fluoride reactor can produce 11,000 Gigawatt-Hours per mega-ton of natural thorium while the traditional reactor produces 35 Gigawatt-Hours per mega-ton of natural uraniumIs that “mega-ton” or “metric ton”? 11,000 GWh out of a million tons of thorium seems a little thin. This pagesays roughly one ton per gigawatt of electricity per year, or about 8600 GWh per ton of thorium.The same 1 GW reactor would require 250 tons of raw uranium, processed to 35 tons of enriched uranium before being used, and then leaves behind 1.3 tons of plutonium and other nasties.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
