Dick Engel and Syd Ball explain over dinner (and a post-dinner interview) their involvement with Oak Ridge National Laboratory's thorium molten salt research. Why are molten salt reactors important? Were there any significant challenges? Why was the program shut down?

Also at the table: Baroness Bryony Worthington, Kirk Sorensen, Kirk Dorius, Dr. Laurence Miller, James L Crowley & Jess Gehin.
