See these are fantastic discoveries, absolutely incredible...so why do I see these on funny junk rather than on the news?  I feel like if they put stories like these on the news it would 1. be much less depressing than it usually is and 2. make kids more aware of all the things they can do in science, so then we can hopefully advance the scientific and math level that America is at right now. Just some food for thought

Could someone explain what glass making has to do with nuclear waste? I have MADE glass before, it's just limestone, sand, and soda ash. No nuclear additives.

The Indians' space program seems extremely efficacious, while NASA was temporarily shut down and has very little support within the country.   
I don't want them to beat us with a manned mission to Mars, but it seems that their probing expedition may be an indication of their future successes.

Who cares if the Indians beat Nasa. It shouldn't be a competition. Should just be about Human discovery, not ones country's discover over another.

The New Solution To Our Nuclear Waste Problem
About that first one:
The process is called "vitrification".
Before that process (which isn't new, it's just a cheaper method of doing it that's new), we would just put the liquid nuclear waste into concrete containers and storing them in mountains and **** . This has the problem that no matter what, the waste will corrode and eat through the container and leak into the groundwater and **** . Vitrification used to use sugar to turn the waste into what is essentially radioactive glass. This was prohibitively expensive. The new method uses slag, a waste by-product of refining metals to do the same thing but far cheaper. This allows us to store the now-solid nuclear waste in very compact places rather than large tanks.

Here's a video that explains it better.
Also, you all should totally subscribe to DNews. Seriously, it's like, thrice daily science facts and news for your face. It's awesome.
