In this episode we cover the final storage of nuclear waste in underground facilities. We start out with a conversation about the basic process and the chemistry and physics of nuclear waste with Gareth Law, a professor of radiochemistry at the university of Helsinki. We then discuss geological issues with Heini Reijonen of the Geological Survey of Finland. Our third conversation is about the Onkalo storage facility in Finland with Sophie Haapalehto, who works for Posiva, the operator of the site.

Wie die Corona-Pandemie und der Klimawandel eindrucksvoll beweisen, haben wir als Menschen große Probleme, mit exponentiellem Wachstum umzugehen: wir unterschätzen systematisch seinen Effekt. In dieser Episode spreche ich über diesen Sachverhalt und die Konsequenzen mit Christian Stöcker, der dazu das Buch Das Experiment sind wir geschrieben hat.

My guest Jens and I have two things in common: we both fly gliders, and we both got to fly in an F-16. Which is why we form the Viper Gliding Club :-) Jens is a Danish journalist and got to fly with the Danish Air Force in one of their F-16Bs. In this episode we compare notes on our experiences, appreciate the commonalities and discuss the differences.

In dieser Episode spreche ich mit Stefan Bühler von der Uni Hamburg über grundlegende physikalische Mechanismen des Klimas bzw. dessen Veränderung. Wir besprechen den Temperaturhaushalt und das Abstrahlverhalten, den Treibhauseffekt, den Kohlenstoffkreislauf, und andere Mechanismen und Kreisläufe in der Atmosphäre und den Ozeanen.

A while ago we had a whole series about LHC, ATLAS and particle physics in general. However, despite all we know and the explanatory power of the standard model, there is also a variety of open questions and currently unexplained phenomena. These include dark matter, dark energy, the neutrino mass, the CP violation, the hierarchy problem, and of course the unification of the standard model with gravitation. In this episode, CERN’s Valerie Domcke explains what it’s all about.
