Maybe I am missing something here, but don't we really want to be able to retrieve the spent fuel for future use?

An article in the Trenton Times (USA May 15, 2012) describes results
rom an article by
arpizo et al. in the journal Cancer Cell. Thiosemicarbazones (a
ompound) are used to correct a
utation in the p53 protein. The protein is then enabled to do its
riginal job and stop the spread of
arious and assorted cancers. They did work implanting human tumor cells
n mice, and then
reating the tumor cells with the relevant compound. More studies to be
one, of course.
Look at the article for a more exact and complete description of the
WIPP for storing High Level Waste is a neat idea. Guess there would
ave to be many EPA/Public
Meetings (again???) for this to occur.
This months Health Physics Society Newsletter describes some kind of
summer training opportunity in Nuclear Science at Brookhaven National
ab and a west coast USA
location. See the newsletter.
An MCNP5/MCNPX course is being given soon also. See the HP Society
For those not having the means to join the VIP Brookhaven Lab tour
escribed a few days ago
in a radsafe posting, Brookhaven Lab usually conducts summer tours of
he Laboratory on
specified days. See their website.
Have a good weekend!!!!
