Come on space station!  We need ya!  :)  Not veering too far off
topic, anyone play Sid Meier's Civilization?  Doesn't everything that
is going on remind you of the problems faced in the "advanced"
civilizations that didn't make it into space fast enough?  Sid's a
genius!  :D

And to bring it back onto the topic (in this off topic conversation ;]
) is jettison an option?  The nuclear waste getting buried here seems
to be a bad option, but what about propelling that stuff into space
when we send up a couple of astronauts to work on the space station?
Send it into some path towards the sun maybe?  Clearly I'm not the
first to think of this option, I'm just curious what the problem with
this idea is.  I live in Utah and we have a nuclear disposal company
(Energy Solutions) that is trying to buy waste from other nations to
bury in the deserts here; I hear a lot of NIMBA and so I'm curious
where it should go if not in your own backyard.  He who made it should
deal with it kind of a thing.
