Aerospace vehicles utilizing Thorium as a fuel source.
Thorium is an exceedingly abundant and potent energy source, which is also much more stable than uranium, with a VERY long half-life. Furthermore, with the fact that lighter reactors can be used to extract energy from Thorium, it would allow for planes and spaceships that could easily remain in the sky for extraordinary durations, as well as leave the planet and go colonize and establish mining locations in outer space, which, if conducted, is only limited by the power of the propulsion systems, which would probably be ion thrusters.
I would like to hear your thoughts.
