New exhibition: „Journey through time to a deep repository“

Nagra’s new exhibition „Journey through time to a deep repository“ will be presented to the public for the first time at the Schaffhausen autumn fair from 21st to 25th October.

The exhibition has been designed to provide concrete answers to questions that are raised repeatedly by the public in the siting regions as part of the search for disposal sites.

The exhibition is divided into three main elements: a virtual experience section with a journey through time to a future repository, an information section with interesting exhibits and a dialogue section for discussions and exchange of views with the public.

The „Journey through time to a deep repository“ provides a virtual look into the future. It uses the novel Oculus virtual reality technology to allow visitors to the exhibition to experience today what a future waste disposal facility will be like. The information section looks at a range of topics including rock properties, earthquakes, glacier erosion, the repository surface facility and seismic investigations. All these topics are raised repeatedly in discussions with the public.

Come and visit us – we look forward to talking with you.
