Today's nuclear reactors are some of the safest buildings on the planet but why are they considered dangerous?

Because in solid reactor fuel, dangerous radioactive products are gases which can travel thousands of miles. Although unlikely today, this has happened in the past.

Why do Stable Salt Reactors change this paradigm?

Because in molten salt fuel those same radioactive gases are stable non-airborne salts that will stay inside the reactor even in a severe accident.

This has been known for 70 years! Yet all our reactors today use solid fuel because everyone believed molten salt fuel had to be used in a totally new, complex and expensive engineered system that would make today’s reactors look simple.

This was Moltex Energy’s breakthrough: we proved that molten salt fuel could simply replace solid fuel in today’s highly developed fuel assemblies.
