Shit in Space

Solution to orbital debris

So most of the space above the Earth looks like your white trash neighbor’s yard. That’s because we treat that area like we do our own planet, except we don’t bother to put that junk in one special place like here, so it’s literally everywhere. The law of entropy means that, unlike everything on the Enterprise, all those satellites just fall apart and become defunct. We don’t recycle a damn thing. This really great idea, however, could help us solve this potentially serious threat. Now, what I really wonder is whether or not all those telecommunications company’s put any money up for this, since most of the junk up there is owned by private corporations?
