Innenraum des Colosseum The Coliseum as Nuclear Power Station
If the caesars Vespasian and Titus had the Coliseum in Rome not built as an arena, but rather as a nuclear power station, with good care and good luck it had provided energy until the times of Constantin the Great. Since then, it must be custoded by a highly responsible and highly educated troup. This troup should have held her post of duty when the Huns threatened Rome, and when the Vandals plundered it. They should have denied access to the Borgia Popes, so these could not tamper with dangerous materials. (But then, who fed and paid said troup?) They must not care for Napoleon or for Garibaldi. Only now, by and by the area could be opened again.

Does anyone believe, this would have been possible?

Does anyone believe, this will be possible in future?

I do not.

Compared with what happened 1986 at Chernobyl and 2011 at Fukushima, this scenario is rather harmless.


Thanks but no thanks. I wanted a different dish, not a different plate.
