A progress update on this semester’s research project.
The research is taking shape around narrative of nuclear genocide due to a global conflict. Those lucky enough not to be hit by the direct blasts would be bombarded by tremendous amounts of radiation. Traditionally such radiation would require massive concrete walls or thick lead shielding to survive such a fall out. The premise of this proposal is that by harvesting this radiation as an energy source, the energy of the harmful radiation would be diverted, while also providing a means of surviving amid this post-apolitical wasteland.
The current proposed means of surviving this devastating event is a deployable structure actuated by pneumatics.
