Our world is generating more and more nuclear waste, but have no permanent place to dispose of it. But the nation of Finland has a plan. Theyre building an underground cave, to hold thousands of tonnes of nuclear waste, for at least 100 thousand years. On this edition, we hear excerpts of the film, Into Eternity, which explores the logistical and philosophical quandries around the construction of something that if it works, might very well outlast the entire human race.
