How Safe is Nuclear Transportation?

This video is sponsored by Blinkist, the first 100 people to go to https://www.blinkist.com/curiousdroid will get FREE unlimited access for 1 week to try it out. You will also get 25% off the full membership price.

The transportation of radioactive material is much more common than many people think because it’s not just spent nuclear fuel and warheads that need to the moved but how safe are and shipments of radioactive materials on the public transport systems.

Colonizing Cislunar Space and the Lagrange Points

Visit our sponsor, Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/IsaacArthur/
To travel to other planets, we will first have to build up are infrastructure closer to home, in orbit of Earth. The best place to get all the mass for those space stations and rocket fuel depots is from the Moon, and we’ll examine the milestones we’ll need to reach to start lunar resource harvesting and building up space settlements.
