When uranium is hit by a neutron in the reactor, it splits into different things, some of which are radioactive, right? Well surely to get rid of the problem of having radioactive waste they could just carry on firing neutrons at these radioactive elements untill they split into elements that are stable, would this work? and is there a reason why we aren't doing it now? also, approximately how much waste is produced by the average nuclear power plant each month?
