They actually used real nuclear reactors in some of their spying satellites, and those reactors are now leaking their coolant to orbit.

Nice logic... climbing out from hole requires smaller amount of energy than falling to it!

The best way how to get rid of the waste is to shoot it to the Jupiter, or outside the solar system. It takes less energy when compared to the "sun solution".
I admit it wasn't best comparison.

Written like someone with NO understanding of orbital mechanics. It would take MUCH more energy to reach the sun then to go to the moon or other "near" planets. Try thinking of it like you are on a very fast carousel and trying to throw a ball to the center. It's much easier to throw it away from the center, not toward it!
