- Aug 21, 2007This aspect has been considered and due to more risks of having a mishap on the launch pad or close to earth, this method of disposing off any radio active material was abondoned. A few years ago a Satellite came very close to earth and crashed in Canada, spilling radioactive material used in Thermo-Nuclear power generator. After that such power sources were replaced by Photovoltaic PV Solar Cells (and Fuell Cells in International Space Station), much safer than earlier Thermo-Nuclear powerr sources.----- Original Message -----From: Ariel ThomannSent: Tuesday, August 21, 2007 6:33 PMSubject: Re: [hreg] Fwd: Re: I guess I should ask........
-1. I agree with Bashir, except I'd delete the supernatural element.
-2. Re: space. I've wondered about it for some time. Humanity has some
reliable big rockets. Could a payload of nuclear waste be sent up with just
enough ooomph to escape Earth gravity? I guess the sun's gravity would ensure
delivery to the big furnace, where it wouldn't even make a ripple. Perhaps
with a pair of gravity assist "slingshots" as it swings by Venus and Mercury.
I don't know how many such shots it would take, but it should be worth
- We are all Human beings here together. We have to help one another, since
otherwise there is NO ONE who will help.
- All countries need a NO REGRETS strategic energy policy. Think ahead 7
