Space debris or “junk” is a known problem that is getting worse right on schedule and it is best dealt with sooner rather than later.
We hear a fair bit about the problem of space debris from time to time but it seems no body does anything about it. Well that is not quite true, it isn’t a simple task. Two videos, the first is more of a problem statement as it was in 2013 published by ESA in 2016:
The second highlights the 7th European Conference on Space Debris coming from ESA’s European Space Operations Centre, Darmstadt, Germany on 18 to 21 April 2017.
The promises to be a great conference.
