A company called Laser Power Systems have come up with a concept for an engine power by Thorium. Its one of the densest materials on earth and could be used as an energy source to power transportation in the future.
However, don’t be throwing your Tesla on eBay just yet as Dr Charles Stevens, CEO of Laser Power Systems has told the press that car makers are not interested in their concept and they will be focusing principally on power for industrial and other domestic applications.
What this story does highlight however that the race for finding the viable alternative to internal combustion engines for the mainstream in the future is definitely on and getting more space age by the day!
