Default Space lasers to blast orbiting rubbish

Well it is a real mess with billions of pieces of space junk and it has become to dangerous for space men/women as well as the other items in orbit that are needed.

NASA has plans; earth to the moon, then to Mars... Got to clean up some millions pieces of debris.

Anyone have other possible ideas to handle the mess?


Space lasers to blast orbiting rubbish

A team of scientists in Australia are preparing to fire high-powered lasers into space to blast some of the 170 million pieces of man-made debris orbiting the earth.

That cosmic clutter, building up since successful satellite launches began in 1957, poses a constant threat to satellites, spacecraft and people.

AT least we're cleaning up after ourselves...
