Burying N reactor waste in Finland 22.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Beneath a forested patch of land on the Gulf of Bothnia, at the bottom of a steep tunnel that winds for 3 miles through granite bedrock, Finland is getting ready to entomb its nuclear waste. If all goes well, sometime early in the next decade, the first of what will be nearly 3,000 sealed copper canisters, each up to 17 feet long and containing about two tonnes of spent reactor fuel from Finland's nuclear power industry, will be lowered into a vertical borehole in a side tunnel about 1,400 feet underground. As more canisters are buried, the holes and tunnels — up to 20 miles of them — will be packed with clay and eventually abandoned. The fuel, which contains plutonium and other products of nuclear fission, will remain radioactive for tens of thousands of years — time enough for a new ice age and other epochal events. But between the 2-inch-thick copper, the clay and the surrounding ancient granite, officials say, there should be no risk of contamination to future generations. "We are ...

Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar in running for same role? 22.6.2017 DNA: Top News
Two actors vying for the same project is nothing new, but if the two actors happen to be as big as Akshay Kumar and Ajay Degn, then it's a matter of curiosity. Last month, some reports had emerged of AK giving the green signal to a film based on the 1989 Raniganj coal disaster. The superstar was supposed to play the role of engineer Jaswant Singh Gill, who had masterminded the rescue operation. But now, reports have come of Ajay playing the role in a film to be directed by Tinu Suresh Desai. However, Jaswant has told Mid-Day that many people from the film industry have approached him. "Several people have approached me, but it would only be limited to calls. I was recently approached on behalf of Ajay Degn's team for the rights, which I have consented to," he told the tabloid.
