Dear Cheap Astronomy – What the best solution to the space junk problem?

Well, good question. Without meaning to get too alarmist here, it is fair to say that no-one is anywhere close to solving this one.

Dear Cheap Astronomy – Well OK, how do we stop creating more space junk then?

This is the second half of a question we’d attempted to answer last week on how you clean up space junk – where last week we reached the conclusion that it’s just plain impractical, economically, if not technologically, to think we are going to make any serious headway on fixing the existing problem any time soon.
