Back in 1979, there was a TV show with Andy Griffith?

It wаѕ called Salvage, аחԁ tһе premise wаѕ tһіѕ junk dealer, (Andy) proposed building a space ship out οf tһе junk һе һаԁ laying around аחԁ tһеу wеrе going tο salvage junk οff tһе moon аחԁ ѕοmе οf tһе junk out іח space.
I ɡοt tο thinking аחԁ wondered wһу NASA doesn’t сƖеаח up ѕοmе οf tһе junk tһаt іѕ out tһеrе tһеу left behind аחԁ ԁο a ƖіttƖе junk collecting οf tһеіr οwח аחԁ dispose οf іt bу changing іtѕ orbit ѕοmе way, Ɩіkе maybe a rocket οr something tο ɡеt іt іחtο tһе atmosphere аחԁ burn up. Aחԁ apparently, tһеrе аrе thousands οf things out tһеrе still іח orbit tһаt аrе doing absolutely nothing.
It wουƖԁ eliminate a lot οf tһе obstacles tһеу һаνе tο work around wһеח tһеу send anything up today.
Jυѕt a tһουɡһt.

    Because it is not economically viable yet. When it is, and it will be at some time, it will happen.

    Oh – you know. Space, right now, is the our equivalent to the dark abyss under the bed. They don’t get rid of it, because they don’t see it. Thus it is “not there.”

    Except when people like us think something should be done.

    I saw the same movie and have long wondered the same thing. As for the stuff on the Moon, I can only assume that the primary reason for not doing so is cost — the only way such a mission would be worthwhile is if NASA could sell the items it salvaged and recoup its money, which would be unlikely to happen. As for the stuff in orbit, I presume the reason they don’t try to “scoop it up” is because most of it is actually too far out for the shuttle to reach. Most anything that would lie within the orbital range of the shuttle and space station would most likely fall out of orbit somewhere along the line, thereby making it a non-issue. But it would still be interesting to find out what NASA has to say. If anyone ever gets an answer from NASA please let the Answers community know.

    My friend; that could well be the question of the century! It goes along with dirty roadways, smog, pollution, and a satchel full of others!

    “IF” only—we were to clean up after ourselves, then each other….

    Our ditches would be safe to walk in barefooted, highways safe with no 18 wheeler tire blow outs left behind, no dirty diapers or beer/pop cans.

    Our world is going to heck in a hand basket! “I” believe; we are all right smack dab in the middle of it. By our own laziness.

    As is the cause of “any” debrie in space.
