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

I dunno, I kinda dislike kaku. There are so many things he claims which are utterly silly.

I doubt even 40% of his predictions come true, especially the one about the robocalypse. And if there were a robocalypse with terminator machines, the solution is simple. Just throw in a paradox, a short simple program with a paradox. Eventually it'll loop so many times that it will overrun the DRAM systems which forces the use of HDD RAM which eventually ruins the hard drive. Corrupting enough data, and the entire army falls apart.

The science channel, especially in his case, is turning more into the "futuristic stuff that people like" channel and not actual science. How else can someone explain the whole ghosthunters series on the HISTORY channel. For one thing, its pseudo science. For another, its anything but history.

People like kaku are literally paid to make stuff up. The good ones try and make stuff up that's based off of reality. The best ones end up being right. The bad ones get paid to make stuff up that earns them more money. And in my eyes kaku is the latter one.

If I were you guys, I'd take what he says with a grain of salt. Especially if you look at the predictions that other scientists made a mere 40 years ago.

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?

U238 is relatively stable and is not very fissile unless under special circumstances (ie, inside a thermonuclear bomb).

But I do agree with you on the thorium subject.

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.

I'm pretty sure new horizon used plutonium. Solar panels don't work well when you get that far away from the sun so most deep space probes are nuclear.

Thanks for correcting me, I was under the assumption that they all use fuel and rocket boosters.
I mean it just seemed like you give them a push and they keep going forever in space, I didn't think they needed energy once they go the trajectory.

Even the Pioneer and Voyager spacecraft have nuclear reactors(radioisotope thermonuclear generator). Getting to the moon is done in a couple days. It's getting to Mars that some feel nuclear is the only option in order to save time. Otherwise you're in transit for 214 days with a launch window once every 2 years. With a nuclear rocket, you can get there in around 4 months. The hardest part is figuring out how to land a 50 ton spacecraft on Mars though. It doesn't have enough atmosphere to land like in Earth and has too much to land like Apollo did on the Moon.

This sort of thing may follow quite easily from a working polywell.

Half of the problem is the government here... greedy bastards that are just increasing gas prices to sell more oil which most of them own many many shares in to get more money for themselves and less for us...

You could also use a breeder reactor and not have to worry after you have the feeder stock:)

Not necessarily, there is a company using bio-engineered bateria that can break down forest and farming waste and make it into bio-fuel. Look up Bell Bio-energy for more details. They have run a couple of programs for the Army and Air Force both have been successful.
