Re: Radiation.

Burying the radioactive waste underground or at the bottom of the oceans with a decay rate of anywhere from10,000 to a million years, depending on the particular isotopes, would likewise require a society to remain stable for those periods of time in order to remember where the radioactive waste is. Society has never been stable for such a period of time in terms of record keeping or otherwise. Ultimately, this buried deadly treasure would end up being discovered by unknowing excavators or deep sea explorers. I say if you cannot safely launch the radioactive waste into the sun then do not burden our planet with it to begin with.
