Hello, This topic is an open discussion around the technical, ethical and legal implications and issues behind high-level nuclear waste management. I am a designer working on a project aimed at exploring the future of nuclear waste, by proposing alternative ways of dealing with the issue. For this project, I need to research and understand certain particularities about nuclear physics, especially the ones behind radioactive waste, but also the legislation, ethics, politics, and economics around the issue. The internet is full of information, but most of it is either too complicated (papers by scientists), or too simplified (papers by journalists). I have started this topic with the hope to get help from the Physics Forum community. And, instead of being specific to my project, keeping the discussion open would potentially benefit a greater number of people. Let's have an interesting discussion.
