Transporting radioactive fuels

+0
−0

Imagine a light spaceship capable of traveling at 0.999c is tasked to tow a radioactive cargo containing millions of tons of polonium and radium, however the container holding the radioactive materials made of 100mm thick concrete with 50mm lead layer tethered by a 10000mm long carbon nanotube cable, my concern is the close proximity between my crews and the cargo due to length contraction when going 0.999c? Am I being paranoid or I need to cancel the shipment as I don't want to compromise safety?
