Space Trash

Friday, February 20, 2009

Scientific American has a very bloggy post up on space trash full of live links to past articles and tidbits sourced to a Wired reporter’s Twitter feed.  The question: will orbiting debris from interspace smash ups and other intergallactic junk endanger scheduled repairs to the Hubble?

Side note:   If Wikipedia and I have the count right, this will be the fifth mission to repair the space telescope.  I remember when the Hubble first launched and started sending blurry photos back to Earth. I was gifted one of the best telescopes under $200 for the time and I started looking for space debris more than stars after that. I think I was in the sixth grade, just old enough to figure out that adults had very little figured out.
