Junk Yard Man

You are not content with

polluting your planet

Now you have made your

outer space a junk yard too

Within the vast
debris field

there are tens of millions of

small fragments and an estimated

19,000 at 1 kilogram (2.2 lb) or heavier

Kessler Syndrome will soon render

space exploration, and even the use of

satellites, infeasible for many generations

I started a post on space junk a few months back and never finished it. It's not something we think about every day but it is certainly a concern. Thanks for bringing it up!
