Euronews: Space debris problem piles up

Oh, us wacky humans. We haven’t learnt enough from our mistakes on earth so we transferred them into outer space. Makes sense, no? Seems all the space exploration that has been going on has managed to fill the space above our planet with tons of space junk that cost millions upon millions of dollars to get up there. Now, scientists are facing the challenge of what exactly to do about this problem they have created. Apparently, the risk of the existing space junk destroying scientist’s new space toys and turning them into, yes you guessed it, MORE space junk, is also rising. Oh, the webs we weave.
