Cool looking car. Nuclear reactor on wheels? Getting in a wreck could have global implications....

Test tube meat on same page. Halal bacon is on the way. Someone will make billions on that. Wish it was me. :P

State governments are already up in arms over the current crop of electric vehicles, because they don't pay as much gas tax as the big boys, which means that the money that they take in to fix the roads that they never use to fix the roads will stop coming in.

Practicality will never work in a tax-oriented, profit-oriented, get filthy rich off the poor people world.

Gee, that's the most optimistic I've felt in years!  ;D

As the article goes on to point out, thorium could potentially provide an alternative to uranium for nuclear power: more abundant, less dangerous waste produced, harder to use as a fission weapon. I'd really like to see that happen.

I think I read about this a couple years ago. Though, I do like the smell of gasoline/petrol. I'd miss it.
