Every day, the world over, large amounts of high-level radioactive waste cre- ated by nuclear power plants is placed in interim storage, which is vulnerable to natural disasters, man-made disasters, and to societal changes. In Finland the world’s first permanent repository is being hewn out of solid rock – a huge system of underground tunnels - that must last 100,000 years as this is how long the waste remains hazardous.

I found this documentary completely fascinating. Scientists and engineers discussing the building of a nuclear waste storage facility deep underground in Finland which must remain intact for 100,000 years and grappling with the impossibility of planning for every possible eventuality (war, earthquakes..) and what technological and scientific capabilities future humans may or may not possess.
