Actually there’s all too much space junk posing ever worse hazards up there in the Black. Its a growing problem and has been for some time. I expect we’ll hear (or maybe not hear after the first few) of many more such close encounters of the space garbage kind.
China shooting that satellite apart really was a poorly thought out jerk move on their part. If there was any justice some of that debris would hit *their* new space station!
Still looking on the bright side since the last couple of recent successful Soyuz rocket launches at least they’re not going to “de-crew” the International Space Station* as was originally feared after an unmanned Soyuz failure a monthor two ago.
* Really wish they’d give the ISS a proper name. Sigh.
Slightly off topic butt a reminder for a somewhat related one – its now T minus one day three hours and counting :
until the launch of NASA’s latest and best Mars rover the Curiosity – even whilst Opportunity continues to roam the russet sands of its target planet.
