Yep. It's good, but we still have a long ways to go if we want to make 25,000 signatures by the January 21st deadline.

I've got the site, the petition, and this thread linked in my signature. I think that's enough, for the moment at least. Anything more than that might be considered spam, which wouldn't really help the cause.

That's not really specified on the site. Presumably that will depend on whichever is safer and/or more economical at the time of construction. At the moment, thorium seems to be in the lead.

I'll bring that up on the forums and get back to you.

What meant to say was have you posted on other sites other than here?

Cool about the reactor, also just an off question here, would you know what is the highest power generated of electricity by a nuclear reactor?

Yes, I have. Though this one seems to be getting more attention than the others.

The largest individual reactor is the Brokdorf reactor in Germany, which produces 1,410 MWe (1.4 GWe). The Enterprise's main reactor will use 1.5 GWe, so we're clearly capable of building the necessary reactor.

Yes, we are witnessing the birth of the age of Cold Fusion. It's an incredible technology with the potential to completely revolutionize the energy industry. Unfortunately, it likely won't be ready in time for the Gen1 Enterprise.

I could see the Gen2 using it, though. It would certainly make a great power source, and cheaper too.

why wont it be ready for the GENprise? If its going to take 20 years then that is more than enough time, 5 year tests should do then have it manufactured and make variations.

Also I just found this on my facebook http://www.space.com/19110-starship-...-petition.html
