There are over 2.3 million cubic metres of radioactive waste in the UK. Of this over 1,340 cubic metres is high level waste. I haven't found a figure for the amount of high level waste worldwide but it's said to be increasing by at least 12,000 metric tons per year.
We often hear it suggested that radioactive waste can be put in a rocket and fired into the sun.
What I'm wondering is.....
How big will this rocket have to be?
