the problem of nuclear defense waste, 2023

A work inspired by the deleteriously entangled relationship between defense and energy applications of atomic forces in sensationalist press and public discourse. In my research of the history of nuclear technology, I have discovered that controversial management of waste generated by defense, and the creation of radioactive superfund sites, obstructs the public embrace of the nuclear energy industry, which opposite to defense facilities is highly regulated and routinely publicly scrutinized. There is a need to differentiate between defense and commercial use of the atom.
