encasing nuclear waste materials in glass is an attempt to *immobiliize* 
the waste products. meaning they can't blow away in the wind, wash away 
via underground water movement, and so forth. the encapsulated material 
does not contain *latent* radioactivity, it contains radioactivivity, 
pure and simple. hence the material still has to be buried safely 
somewhere not too close to your bedroom.
