Kirk Sorensen is the co-founder and chief technologist of Flibe Energy. He is a member of a tiny club of people who can honestly claim to be atomic entrepreneurs. He is a brilliant man – one of the few people who has been both a rocket scientist and a nuclear engineer.
Kirk is best known as the world’s formost proponent of molten salt reactors fueled with uranium and thorium.
Our initial plan for this episode of The Atomic Show was to have a three way conversation with Richard Martin, the author of Superfuel, but that did not quite work as planned. Perhaps anticipation will build even more due to the delay.
I hope you enjoy the conversation; Kirk and I do not really need anyone else to enable a spirited discussion about various forms of nuclear energy.
