First, pardon my ignorance in the matters of nuclear weapons and waste.First, pardon my ignorance in the matters of nuclear weapons and waste.
Ok, I'm reading this story about an asteroid possibly hitting the earth in about 18 years. Now I recall stories about a nuclear waste facility being built in a mountain (sorry, I have a bad memory, and can't find a link, atm). Is it possible to load this waste into warheads and start firing them at the asteroid? At least it'll get the waste off the earth, and maybe we can break up/alter the trajectory of the asteroid?
