Should the moon be used as a landfill?
Debate Rounds (3)
my first argument will be that it is virtually impossible from a financial stand point.
C-A-1: It has been estimated that sending waste into space costs about 10,000$ for each POUND(or 22,000$ a Kilogram) and the united states alone creates about 208 million metric tons of waste each day.
Since 1 metric ton = about 2205 Pounds
2205 * 208,000,000 = 458,640,000,000 pounds total
458,640,000,000*10,000=4,586,400,000,000,000$ a day
Addendum: I am sorry for my absence I created my argument but forgot to actually submit it.

Also it gives more space to put uranium waste from nuclear fission reactors, giving us a less worry-able energy supply. Also cost of transport is nothing if enough governments are willing to do it.
