Scientists Trying To Solve Growing Space Junk Problem

Technology has contributed to the growing number of pieces of space junk orbiting the Earth and now, the question is how to retrieve it safely, according to a new report.

Defense One examined the issue and concluded that the problem of what to do with the floating chunks is complex and difficult to solve.

“The best scenario is to establish a regime whereby those assets we send to space, once they are approaching the end of their lifetime, there is some mechanism whereby they could be either collected or actually guided back toward the graveyard — it could be a spot in the ocean — and in a very controlled manner,” Ambassador Sorin Ducaru of the European Union Satellite Center told Defense One. “Otherwise, if they’re blown up or if they collide, they create even more space debris.”
