It's a shame the posts that are slightly off-topic offend you. Browsing Newschoolers must be a painful experience for you... why are you even here? Had the thread been titled "Depleted Uranium Munitions" your point might be valid.
Did I ever say that communication difficulties over time was the sole reason Yucca Mountain is a bad idea? Don't think so, 'kid'. Just about anything can happen in four and a half billion years, and it's downright ignorant to think even for a second that we can predict anything that far in advance with any sort of accuracy.
You accuse ME of not knowing what I'm talking about? You're one badass hypocrite. You assume that a future civilization is going to resemble us, which is a terrible assumption coming from any educated person. Humans have been around for what? 300,000 years, maybe? Do you have ANY idea how long 4.47 billion years is? It's highly unlikely we're going to be around then, especially considering our current environmental path. For all you know shit could go all Jurassic.
Also, did I ever mention that launching nuclear waste into space was economically feasible? Uhh, no buddy doesn't look like it. I'm fully aware of how expensive and inefficient space launch is. Orbit? Who said anything about orbit? Yeah, you're right, storing nuclear waste in orbit is a retarded idea. How did you interpret 'deep space' as several hundred kilometers above the earth? I'm pretty sure NASA's not worried about the Voyager probes 'falling back to earth' anytime soon. Maybe when the universe begins contracting? Guess you know when that's going to happen to don't you.
I'm sorry that I don't know the exact repercussions of an arbitrary amount of radioactive mater being released in the upper atmosphere. But based on your misplaced sense of wisdom I'm betting you don't either. I don't know what level of 'fucked' we'd be but does it really matter?
Who's got bad information now. Read a book. Anything else you know that I don't?
