|Summary:||Is the isolation of radioactive waste in tunnels and caverns excavated deeply in rocks, sufficient to guarantee the security of future generations? Is it possible to find a rocky formation which could resist a seismic movement, the action of man and time? Could one predict an underground flood around and at the storage site during the future dozens of thousands of years? How long would it take for this water to reach the surface and what would be the strength of these radioactive particles at such a moment? The book compares different methods for storing and getting rid of these substances and attempts to answer all the above questions.|
