There was a Nuclear plant at Lucas Heights, but that is largely for experimentation rather than making power.

They were mostly experimenting there and the reactor was more for the purpose of building Nuclear Weapons rather than make energy. Australia has a long history of experimenting with Nuclear Energy, Ballistic Rocketry, and Nuclear testing from the early 1960s.

Australia never pursued Nuclear Energy because of the abundance of other Energy Sources. But that could change as they are debating Nuclear power now as a viable transition to Green Energy sources like solar, hydro, and wind power.

Too bad... :( Australia is not for me then... :cry:

I may not agree with your political opinions, but i don't wish you ill will.

...and why not Cyprus? Thorium reactors do not make bombs, they make medical materials, and not unsafe. It is a race to building the first, and it could very well represent a new age of power, beyond the internal combustion engine. Even the cost compared to its benefits are significantly less than most sources of energy. All it needs, is brains; i bet if you put your mind to it, it may happen.

cheers!
