A fascinating bit of physics for our time...

Bury it, send it to space.. what's a planet to do with that pesky unwanted radioactive waste?  As a man of science myself, I have always wondered if there were methods to accelerate the decay and make the stuff rather benign.  Seems that maybe there is!

Do any of this blog's readers know if this has progressed beyond a theory?  I suppose it would take a decade or so of super-cooling to quantify the rates and publish work that is credible... that should be happening now.  Hmmmmm, IF it is the way to go, I suppose the patents on the process would be filed soon too... 

Thought I'd share this "cool" idea on the first day of summer!
