An area in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire that will now soon be storing a massive amount of radioactive material.
God grief! Haven”t they heard about what happened to the moon in Gerry Anderson’s ‘Space 1999′ (1974-76)?
That radioactive dump ended up overheating until the whole lot exploded. This ripped the moon from its orbit and sent the small lunar community living there (led by two miserable-looking yanks from ‘Mission Impossible’) towards far off planets and aliens body-sprayed with Ford Capri metallic silver car paint and wearing nothing but reams of Bacofoil and second-hand crash helmets.
Even if one ignores the bits in that last paragraph about the small community living on the moon and the ‘Bacofoil Aliens’, then one can”t ignore the fact that storing long-term radioactive waste close to a densely populated city could, in the long-term, cause more problems than finding somewhere to dump it.
Of course, there are some people who would say that a huge nuclear explosion that shoots Peterborough out into deep space towards ‘God-knows-where’ wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing.
Especially if the atheist Stephen Hawking is visiting Peterborough at the time and offers to pilot the city towards his New Earth. Particularly as he is so damn sure that a New Earth is actually out there somewhere, even though he hasn’t seen it, but merely has faith and hope that it will be there when he arrives.
