While researching new forms of nuclear power as sustainable options, Kirk Sorensen discovered thorium. Thorium is a naturally occurring nuclear fuel that is four times more common in the earth's crusts than uranium. This type of nuclear power doesn't require the use of massive containers in which it is cooled. To use thorium is a much cheaper, cleaner and more efficient process. Kirk Sorensen describes thorium as being so energy-dense that one could hold a lifetime's worth of energy in one's palm. Thorium is a portable energy source that could not only create self-sustaining communities on earth, but also on the moon.
