As Gravity made clear to the general public, it’s getting crowded in Earth orbit. In the nearly 57 years since Sputnik’s launch on October 4, 1957, Earth has seen a cloud of human-created objects continue to grow, expanding like dandelion fluff around our planet. In 2014, there’s good and bad news on the subject.



It seems we ( mankind) can make a mess anywhere. Even space is not safe.

I'm sure the real problem is "who pays for it?".


Also, wouldn't you love to hear this from your wonderful darling, "Mommy(Daddy), I want to grow up to be a space garbage scow astronaut!". Since 'wonderful darling' only wants to be garbage man, the Right would defund science education, of course.
