The space junk is becoming a problem already and we have barely started commercial flight into space. I find it fascinating that they mention that something the size of a marble can destroy a whole space station(speed of 15km/second).

There are plans to build a hotel and Richard Branson want's to start commercial flights... the more space debris the more we will end up paying to travel to space.

See the links for the planned hotel in space, Virgin Galactic and a previous thread on the topic.
