Moreover what are you going to do whne it crashes? You've just put toxic wast in a n air burst all over the planet.
If you actually beleive anyone here is serious about launching all of the world's (or even just the States') garbage into space everyday, then well you're sadly mistaken...I hope.
>One NASA craft has exploded during launch. That was 20 years
ago. I think NASA has pretty much perfected the process of
getting things into space. And even if it's not perfect, it's still
a chance that's worth taking.<
Ditto. I think the argument that it's too dangerous is rubbish. Sure, it's not perfect but no mode of transporation is perfect. Cars will crash, airplanes will fall, trains will derail, shuttles will explode. No news to me...
