Muon tomography is a non-destructive technique to image objects from a safe distance. It utilizes the ever-present cosmic radiation and thus does not require additional radiation sources. Due to the highly penetrating nature of muons, it is possible to image the insides of large objects, ranging from nuclear waste drums to pyramids and volcanoes. As such it is an ideal tool to determine the contents and condition of nuclear waste materials in containers like waste drums up to CASTOR storage casks.
