any of you guys knows the Wait but Why webpage?

 

 

currently reading what they wrote about Elon Musk (it's like a book almost although if you read it in the explorer you won't notice it)

 

I thought you (chons and TC) would probably enjoy it so I'll leave the link here :)  http://waitbutwhy.co...addest-man.html

 

It covers of course Tesla and Space X (up to the point where I am right now)

its a 90000 words blog so it'll be a lot.

 

I am liking the last part the better, the first part ist just about Elon Musk, the second part is about tesla, energy, oil and transportation, the  third part is about Space X and obviuosly space, colonizing Mars and whatnot. and the last part (in which I am right now) is about what the author believes is the reason for Mus's success. pretty awesome, I've spent the past 3 days reading and most of it resonates with wath I think and what I wanted to write when I finished my phD.

yeah, I've come around to the idea. The waste storage and just the location of plants in general should be the major factor. Put them bastards out in the wasteland areas and pay people that money to work there

Unfortunately you need to put your power generators near the infrastructure they will be powering to maximise output due to power loss from resistance, so putting the plants out in the middle of nowhere just isnt efficient. But statistically speaking it is the safest and cleanest form of power and the tech is well developed, if people started putting money back into nuclear and implemented some of the newer designs they would be extremely safe. 

I was going to post another video which also details the possibility of Thorium reactors and there ability to deal with the waste generated from current plants but wasnt sure if anyone would be interested. If you have a spare 20 check this out.
