RNE013: Nuclear in Space?! Dr. Chris Morrison Guests!

Welcome back for another great episode of RadioNuclear! Today, I want to take some time to discuss the events happening at Hanford, including the history and what the DOE is trying to do with its nuclear waste policy, and talk about some cool things NASA is doing with nuclear technology! Our guest this week is Dr. Christopher Morrison, an Astro-Nuclear Engineer with Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation. He shares his story, as well as some fascinating insights into how nuclear could shape the future of nuclear in space!

Thank you for sticking around with the show for so long. Here’s to a great 2019 with even more episodes!
