really?

This does however raise the discussion of space junk and debris again. Perhaps there will be more on this story.

However expect one of the recently announced experiments for removing space junk to receive multi billion dollar funding in the next months. Any of the companies involved listed?

I don't know how they are going to handle all the Elenin debris when it nails us. Between the crazy sun flares and all the upcoming debris, they are going to have a huge insurance rate.

"The space junk was detected too late...."- how is that possible? You'd think NASA would be tracking every object no matter how big or small that's anywhere near the ISS. Not good......

yes, being in orbit you would expect all the debris to be mapped and of predictable velocity and movement arc around Earth or am I missing something?

Major Ed Dames predicted this would happen as the first sign of things going 'belly up'. For those of you who don't know he is ex US military who helped establish remote viewing in the US military.
