The storage of High-level Waste (HLW) continues to present both a technological and social problem in the United States. HLW exists in a flurry of questions:
What geological locale will provide the best long-term storage space? How can engineers and scientists create a space that will be safe for thousands of years? What is the most just location for HLW storage? Will the U.S. learn anything from the experience at Yucca Mountain? Who has the power to determine where HLW should be stored?
