I‚Äôve never thought of space as a junkyard.
Call me naive, but I always thought that what we send up comes down — in good time.
Now along with everyone else I‚Äôve learned that we have to vacuum up debris left by our space explorers and old satellites to make room for, well I guess, more junk.
There is a defense project called ‚ÄúCatcher‚Äôs Mitt‚Äù that suggests we cleanup space junk using harpoons, nets, tethers and magnets.
Sounds like a good Sci-fi flick.
It makes me want to go home and clean. How bad is that?
