Join us for a viewing of this 2010 documentary to launch the first of a new series of Engineering Club Film Nights. This will be followed by an informal discussion of the issues surrounding nuclear power.
Every day, large amounts of high-level radioactive waste created by nuclear power plants is placed in interim storages, which are 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.
Captivating, wondrous and extremely frightening, this feature documentary takes viewers on a journey into the underworld and into the future.
ENGINEERING CLUB FILM NIGHT
The Engineering Club will be hosting regular film evenings featuring movies and documentaries chosen and hosted by members. They include refreshments and the opportunity for informal discussion.
