The average person makes about 4.3 pounds of waste per day. There is 7.2 BILLION people in the world! That would be a lot of waste! If this continues, the earth could become a massive landfill! Pollution from landfills can damage the air we breath and the water we drink. Animal habitats are being destroyed because more landfills are needed. So, why not build a durable rocket or space shuttle that can be used over and over to launch trash into space! Space is unlimited, while Earth is small and would fill up with trash. The shuttle would be loaded with junk and be sent to space. But space junk would be annoying for people trying to launch a space expedition, so the rocket is built for flying very far away at high speeds, that way the trash doesn't get in the way.
