Atomic Show #108 is an edited version of the press conference held after the opening session at ASME’s 4th International Topical Meeting on High Temperature Reactor Technology. (Note: The conference is also known as HTR 2008.)
Unfortunately, I am having a tiny technical challenge with the Atomic Show blog right now, so I cannot complete the task of posting the show for subscribers. However, if you are really interested in hearing the thoughts of three leaders in the HTR field about the prospects for growth for their technology (and these sage individuals are talking about unit volumes of several hundred to several thousand reactors) you can download the file by clicking on the following link Atomic Show #108 – HTR 2008 Press Conference with Regis Matzie, Linden Blue and John Grossenbacher.
Hope you find it encouraging, even though the press conference participants note that there are still many challenges left to overcome. It was a great opportunity to listen and talk with the industry leaders and I want to thank the conference organizers for putting the press conference into the schedule and for recognizing that bloggers and podcasters should be considered legitimate media participants.
