I had an epiphany yesterday while having a discussion online about nuclear waste.
The average person thinks of the spent nuclear fuel storage containers as containing liquid.
When I suddenly realized this and posted a picture of a fuel assembly there was a seismic shift in the way people looked at commercial nuclear waste.
The fact is that the public literally believe that weapons production materials is the same as commercial waste.
We can educate the public and fix this.
