What is the best option for nuclear waste
storage? There is no right or wrong. We will explore the subject,
and the option that has the most support “wins.” This is how it
works in the real world; some ideas are better than others … even
if they’re both right. None of these is a magic solution or it
would already be in widespread use. I expect your arguments to
explore the cons for your “best” option as well as the pros. Be
sure to cite your sources. Do not cut and paste. All work should be
original.
In your discussions, I expect to see you rely heavily on your
knowledge of the electromagnetic spectrum and nuclear chemistry to
support your arguments. Consider the source of the radiation and
half life. Consider how radiation is emitted and absorbed by
different substances.
Consider: Explore the following four methods
for nuclear waste storage:
Deep Geological Disposal: Officially open Yucca Mountain or
expand the WIPP facilities in New Mexico to accept non-military
nuclear wastes
Transmutation: Chemical conversion of one element to another
Space Disposal: Launch nuclear waste into space using
rockets
Reprocessing: Essentially recycling of nuclear fuel
