    What if we just throw it into the space?

                  The used fuel only needs to be stored in the pools for 5 years and can be moved to a dry cask storage system. Also,mthe used fuel can be reprocessed for the useful transuranics. The remaining fission products would decay away in several hundred years. This is what France does today.

                    Here is an idea. If I am not misinformed, smaller reactors about the sizes of ones they use in aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines, you can have a containment shell that is absolute or there is not enough fissile material to melt through the containment shell if it loses coolant; also the amounts of nuclear waste might be more manageable. What about a nuclear reactor is every one`s homes which is fool proof; basically you pay to have it installed and every few years pay a low rate to replace the spent fissile material. The pros are that you don`t need a power grid which has to be maintained and it would save average people money; if the technology could possibly used in such a way. I`m not nuclear specialist; so I don`t know personally.

                            shoot it into the sun? the gravity of the sun is so strong that even if the material survives the heat, it will still be trapped there for at least a billion years.

                                We should hire flat-earthers to take the waste to Antarctica and throw it over the edge of the Earth.

                                              Long time solution is not needed. Because high radiation is good for environment, it's just bad for people. Wild life in Chernobil just booming there.

                                                              Better message: “This is the storage site of dangerous material. It hurts you by emitting energy you can not see, can not hear, can not smell, can not feel, and can not taste. The material is waste and presents nothing to you but danger. It can’t even be weaponized. We have sealed away this waste and contained it’s harmful properties but the possibility of a leak still remains. It is best to leave this place abandoned.”

                                                                not cleaner than wind? Honestly wind is really filthy when considering all the energy needed to make those very frequently replaces wings. They wear out ya know. Smelted how? Well.. usually coal..
                                                                Not to mention transport.

                                                                As for storage, real easy, dig a hole in a mountain. Find a stable area and leave the copper tubes there. I went into the depths of it has been in use for some time already. Watched them deposit one of the capsules.

                                                                Sure eventually it will fill up, but by then there should be many more such caves dug.

Just like after atlantis fell in 10600BC and technological civilisation ceased after the meteor cracked canadian iceberg (with a melted water ocean flooding (sealevels rose 150m over night, weather patterns changed, sahara became a desert etc.. and yes atlantis in mali died (see eye of sahara))).

                                                                  In the future if their archeologists are as dumb as ours they will call those deposits religious mazes. Possibly related to Moneytauros[!] (lol), and it was sealed because of astrological reasons.

Slipping and falling on ice? Mistakes made during surgery? RX allergic reactions? When you do the math and then look at the energy that is harnessed , the illogical fear from it becomes laughable. If you still promote scaremongering then tell me WHAT other power supply we can switch to. And switch to almost immediately...
