We have a major trash problem here on Earth, I mean, have you seen those pictures of "Trash island"? If we don't do something soon, trash could become a serious problem for every single person on the planet. Why not just shoot the trash into space, or better yet, send all that garbage straight into the sun. That'll teach it. And while that sounds like a plausible solution to our waste management problem, once you look at the logistics you realize it's insanely expensive to launch trash into space, let alone reach the sun!

Bruh why cant we pull a minecraft steve and throw it into lava...like get a pool of lava and dump it right in there. Easy, takes little space, and doesn't use up fuel ot resources from the environment. Its our natural trash can

Wouldn’t piling trash on the sun increase it’s mass in turn it’s gravitational pull throwing all the planets off their orbits?

I'm surprised people who think of this ain't running idea ent using a volcanofill they cost to atmosphere would probably be the same wonder what using active volcano as a landfill would do apart from smoke a lot lol

It can't happen because the sun is just a laser focal point of light in our atmosphere. The earth Is flat, under a mirrored ice dome that makes the sunlight laser point.

if we reach the point where we've develop the technology to efficiently send our trash to the sun, we'd probably already have also developed alternate ways of dealing with it.

How about dumping all the trash in active volcanoes like the one in Hawaii or something I thought of that when I was a kid
Prince Of Pokemon
Paying for the stuff maybe expensive, but the price is totally worth it if it means getting rid of all this trash. Because honestly, this would be much better than just burning them in incinerators. Although we could have done that with a Volcano, but it would be worse than just burning trash in a common incinerator.

What would be even worse than this dumb project even somehow succeeding is if you accidentally put something in your space trash that you really wish you hadn’t - e.g. your pet.

One big thing left out!!! The amount of trash generated by building these space vehicles and the money earned by trillions and of woman and man hours would generate more trash than a thousand years of trash made in the past. In short, we would be making more new trash than getting rid of.

You can put the trash in the volcano. Why would you need to send them into the sun? What a waste of money.

How about sending thrash to Jupiter is a gas giant and big out of range for a counter orbit and in slower motion the cost of the rockets will be the other issue but we can fix that...

Another simpler idea would be to drop non recyclable trash into a volcano... even better just run a trash burning power plant at least you get something out of it...

There's ALSO the unmentioned fact that it would just become a cloud of space dust after the sun vaporizes it, which, if we're unlucky, could return to CONTAMINATE THE ATMOSPHERE. But, way to overlook that one.

It's a lot easier to move things away from the Sun then towards it and Jupiter already serves as our solar systems vacuum cleaner. Anything we launch at it will be pulled into i

For how little trash would be removed it is not worth it unless there was a full operation launching trash in the direction of the sun where say when the trash was launched and non stop

I understand where your coming from on the financial stand point of view...lol...But dont you think your being just a little bit pessimistic??? I think launching garbage into the Sun would be a great idea & solution to earth's garbage problem....We could get over the financial hurdles & we could get over the rotation problem....We've launched surveillance probes near the Sun, we could launch a rocket directly into the Sun after a few test practices....WE ARE MAN....We can do ANYTHING we put our minds to & focus on.....You were so negative on this topic....lol
