What about designing Robots that we can send into orbit, there would be
different types. For now lets say big and small. The Big ones would attach
themselves to large pieces of debris and kinda try guide it off orbit and
towards the sun.
Then the small ones would have large net type of attachments that they would
use to gather the small pieces of debriz. Then toss it towards the sun!
This will also help increase sun spot activity!

What if we just made a big hollow shuttle type craft to go and scoop up the old junk (the opposite of launching a sat) and putting it in the bay and bring the material back to earth where it could be recycled or sold on ebay??
