I don't know, but I was reading how we have so much nuclear waste and that we don't know what to do with it.

I was thinking what if we disposed of it by sending it into the sun?

Maybe they don't because there is a chance that a launch could go badly wrong and dump its payload into the atmosphere when it did? And then there are the the costs.

Pretty expensive.

Right now it costs about $10,000 to put one pound of anything into a low Earth orbit. It would cost a lot more to get that one pound out of Earth orbit and into an orbit that would send it into the Sun. Or anywhere else where we wouldn't have to worry about running into it again at some point.

All the garbage we've put in there so far has just returned coming out of kanyes mouth.

Lol, what's the closest black hole we know of? The one in the center of our galaxy, might take a while..... a long while, and some real precision.

Actually there is a chemical or compound called Zeolite that absorbs the radioactiveness, and harmfullness of nuclear shock deposites, pollutions and or fallout syptoms related. They are planning to clean up heavily polluted and danger zones with this "Zeolite".
