If true, then what shall happen to ITER?

yah it is. Sure, you need to generate the electricity. But that's the easy part. Its easier to design a nuclear reactor, scratch that, its actually possible to design a reactor for an electrical power plant rather then for an individual car.

Nuclear fission. Building the special (light water I believe?) reactors that use the more common type of uranium will give humanity over a million years worth of energy.

There is no such thing as "common uranium", U-235 is absurdly rare. Its not something you just find with a 10 year old's metal detector.

And if you haven't noticed, vis a vis Japan, screwups happen. Maybe not often, but when they do its disastrous. At this point practically the entire country has at the very least a very mild case of radiation poisoning.

We don't have any way to store the used rods.

There are other ways. There was an thread in here not too long ago talking about how a research team had accidentally found a way to claim almost 100% solar energy with a new solar cell technology.

Michio Kaku's said that if we ever hit 80 that solar could provide more power than we use on earth; right now. You could put it on your roof and live like an energy hog completely off the grid. power your car even.

Not how I meant it. If you read the post I quoted, he mentions that we needed more "plug-in" hybrids. Electricity from the plug is what my post was referring to.

To me, Solar is Solar (because in the end it's converted into useable electricity, but that's not the source)

Obviously he meant U238. And that amount of energy isn't even considering thorium, which releases 200 times more energy per mass and is far more abundant than uranium.

Accidents happen? Yep, all the time, but they're far less dangerous than the pollution from coal fired power stations. And all of japan getting radiation poisoning rolleyes.gif measured radiation levels in Tokyo were a third of those in Rome...

and we have more than enough useless arid land on the planet to store the rods. Where do you think we got the uranium in the first place?

Well, one of the places the US is envisioning storage is Yucca Mountain Nevada. One of the problems is that we can't guarantee that none of it will leak into the ground water below. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yucca_Mountain_nuclear_waste_repository
The hardest part is securing the transportation of these spent fuel rods. How can you guarantee that not a single vehicle will ever get in an accident along the way?

I say we just launch them into space. Not like it's going to get full and overflow. tongue.gif

I think the reason they dont do that is because of the risk of the launch craft exploding.

Nuclear non-proliferation act.
I don't remember the date it was signed but pretty much no nuclear material in space.
Thats why they still burn fuel on space ships, non have nuclear engines. If they did I believe we could get to the moon 10x faster and New Horizon instead of a 10 year journey to travel 3 billion miles to Pluto could of done it in 1.

Correct me if I'm wrong.
