Thorium Molten Salt Reactors were built and developed by a team led by Alvin Weinberg over a twenty year period starting in the 1950s. TMSRs also known as LFTRs (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors) or DMSRs (Denatured Molten Salt Reactors) are important because they are safer and more stable and cannot meltdown because they are already in a liquid state
and therefore do not require expensive containment that normally deals with highly pressurized hot water.
