Slightly off topic sorry,
To clarify a little bit. I was kind of referring to the lack of education that the public school system gives americans these days. I recall that in history class, "we won the war because Russia was broke" explanation. The lack of details in our public school system is horrible. This was in the nineties. I did graduate, to clear that up.
It is pretty bad when you have to leave school to educate yourself...lol

I wonder if there are international laws on Space Junk that can be collected and re-processed by any space agencies from any country? Imagine a giant scoop or net scooping up the debris and dumping it back into its cargo bay and then eject the capsule back to earth on a regular basis. I'm sure the cost would outweigh the junk but who knows when there are so many dumb and BS projects that suck up trillions of dollars, someone just might approve of that

It is fascinating reading, but frustrating to try to verify. I wouldn't rule out that it could be true.

LASER WEAPONS IN SPACE!!!! Haven't you guys seen the episode of Justice League Unlimited where Lex Luther hacked the beam cannon on the Justice Leagues orbital space station and destroyed a military black ops facility and the city around it? We don't have meta-humans to back us up (NO GREEN LANTERN OR SUPERMAN) in the event such technology is hacked by a rouge nation. I would be scared to live on a planet where at any moment a satellite can rain down a death ray... and I am living by the worlds largest acknowledged naval base in Norfolk, VA.
