The US military is working on a solution to the mass of dead satellites surrounding the Earth. The Pentagon is currently working on a space robot that would harvest and reuse dead satellites.

Each one of those satellites costed millions of dollars.

If they can collect / reuse the dead satellites into something functional, then this program
can be called successful.

Taking recycling to new heights - tee hee.

There are tons of space junk circling this planet, threatening satellites and astronauts. It is, ahem, high time that we started doing something about it.

It's about time we started cleaning up our mess. Now, how about cleaning up the oceans, the rivers, the lakes and some landfill sites. Those too are just as important.

There is indeed an ever-growing pile of satellite junk in outer space. It is not enough that we abuse the resources of earth, man has to conquer outer space too.
What about the deep blue planet- the sea- when will man be more respectful and considerate.
