Nuclear reactor safety can never be guaranteed

While debates over the Kudankulam nuclear power plant are raging in Tamil Nadu, , Hans-Peter Duerr, a German Scientist and Nobel Peace laureate has made it clear that it is not possible to substantiate the safety of a nuclear reactor, according to a recent news report.

He stated that despite working out security measures for possible threat scenarios, safe disposal of nuclear waste is still a bigger issue because if it lands in the wrong hands, it could be used to make atom bomb, further added the news report.
