2 thoughts on “Space junk littering orbit; might need cleaning up

  1. Might need cleaning up? I’ve been on this for years. Last I looked there were some eight thousand (8,000) trackable items in near-earth orbit, and an uncounted number of nuts and bolts such as that that took out the last shuttle to go down. It’s so bad that NASA has a Cray dedicated to tracking near-earth orbits.

    The reason we’re crapping out of the space program isn’t Moon Goblins ala Apollo 18 but that there’s just to much junk to fly through to abate the insurance companies.
