    Then it will all burn up re-entering earth. Sounds like a good plan to me.

    They need giant space trash compactors like in Wall-E.

    I hope space trash is all organic/biodegradable, else that’s destroying the ozone quite directly.

    What difference does it make. That’s the one thing about space, there’s too much of it.

    So that’s where my garbage can went.

    Why so many banana peels and wine bottles?

    The problem is, the Earth now actually has a garbage belt, mostly debris from old satellites and such. And it’s liable to crash into new ones.

    You are correct, this strip is very close to NASA’s practice until they realized that crud moving at orbital speed is dangerous.

    Chimps on heavy metal and acid rock. Dawn of hip-hop and rap.

    Those aren’t Boone’s Farm Strawberry Hill bottles are they? Dogsniff, a little help here. Did I just feel a Ripple in the Force?

    Symbolic of the shuttle program itself. Scrap heap of history…But it’s about time that death trap was retired….the shuttle itself was the greatest of spacecraft. However, to save money, they went cheap on the launch system. The original plan called for a ship that could launch itself. Or at least special large rocket to launch it. But they decided it would be cheaper to strap it to a large bomb instead……..Penny wise and dollar stupid..And guess what, as of now the Russians have won the space race! WERE NUMBER TWO! WERE NUMBER TWO! China coming on strong. Everybody else may win everything, but by god we’ll pay less taxes. Of course we’ll probably have to pay financial tribute to whoever our future masters will be..but at least it won’t be taxes….We were a great civilization for a while there….Oh, well, .easy come, easy go…

    unless it doesn’t reenter or burn up. It’s arrogant and downright rude to throw your trash in your neighbor’s yard, and just as arrogant and rude to assume that in the vastness of the universe we are the only creatures who occupy it. It’s never good to pi$$ off your neighbors. Some of them have bigger guns than you do.

    Waste not, want not. The cost would be astronomical and the results chancy at best. Better to deal with it here and now.

    Symbolic of nationalistic thinking. Why must it be them or us? Wasn’t the idea behind the ISS “we”? International cooperation rather than competition, all for the greater good? How far we’ve come, and how little we’ve learned on the journey.
