Science or Fiction?

Abstract:
“The current thought of storing waste underground has its obvious drawbacks,” Lane wrote in a recent letter to Schweitzer. “My idea…is to build a tube [approximately] 6 feet in diameter and roughly 60,000 miles long, suspended in outer space, driven by propulsion and using the natural vacuum of space, [to] suck the waste gases out.”
