Question:What are the problems with nuclear waste?

Radioactive materials are harmful to living things and must be kept away from people and the environment.

So any radioactive materials that are produced must be handled very carefully in order to prevent illness and death.

Unfortunately there is no way to destroy Nuclear waste and Nuclear waste remains radioactive for a very long time, so our descendants will still be dealing with the waste produced by current day nuclear power stations.
