Fusion-Fission Hybrid Reactor: Getting Rid of 99% Nuclear Waste Cleanly

The main problem with nuclear power is that it leaves radioactive residues behind; otherwise, it would be the almost perfect solution for our energetic and climate crises. The almost-perfect solution comes from the physicists at the University of Texas at Austin, who created a way to "use fusion to relatively inexpensively destroy the waste from nuclear fission".
