Monday Spotlight: Nuclear-waste markers

Just after midnight here in Toronto, meaning it's time for another RJS Monday Spotlight!

I've long had a great relationship with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, going back to 1985, when I wrote and narrated three hour-long documentaries on SF for their venerable Ideas series. More recently, I did a series of brief commentaries on cutting-edge science for them, under the umbrella title "Science FACTion." One of these was on the topic of nuclear-waste markers, something that I twisted in a new way involving uploaded consciousness in my novel Calculating God.

Anyway, here's this week's Monday Spotlight, my commentary for CBC Radio on "Devising Markers for Nuclear Waste Sites."

(As you can see, the script called for the use of the wonderful John Williams theme from the old Irwin Allen TV series The Time Tunnel, the first fifteen episodes of which just came out on DVD -- and were promptly snapped up by me.)
