Oct 15-19 marks Nuclear Science Week, an occasion to celebrate all aspects of nuclear science. From answering growing energy needs in a way that is clean and sustainable, to aiding in medical research towards diagnosing and curing diseases, nuclear science is crucial to our everyday lives. But what about safely disposing of nuclear generating facilities once they have reached the end of their lifespan? This is big business, and upwards of 200 reactors will reach their design lifespan in the next 20 years.
