The article reports on the hearings conducted in Gorleben, Germany by the Gorleben International Review Panel chaired by physicist C.F. von Weizsaecker on the safety of the proposed plan to build the world's biggest civil nuclear installation in Gorleben. All the panel members agreed that the Gorleben plan was not satisfactory. If the plan pushes through, spent fuel from West German nuclear power plants will be stockpiled at Gorleben for processing prior to final disposal. The plan has been endorsed by the Federal Bonn government.
