Laser alchemy could burn nuclear waste
Very interesting headline... Lazer Alchemy


Germany, have harnessed the ability of intense laser-plasma interactions to produce gamma rays that can be used for nuclear transmutation.

The team used these gamma rays to irradiate a sample prepared with waste solution from a fuel processing plant. They found that the irradiation changed iodine-129 into iodine-128. While both these isotopes are radioactive, the change is important because it corresponds to swapping a half-life of 15.7 million years for one of 25 minutes.

And They are using water cannons!
