Fourth echelon

International Space Station to test LASER CANNON to vaporise hazardous space junk

Recommended Posts

The International Space Station is continually pelted by small pieces of space junk, and on occasions needs to shift its orbit to avoid major collisions.

Now Japanese researchers have come up with a laser system that could vaporise bits of space debris before they makes contact with the floating laboratory.

There's a huge amount of space debris orbiting the Earth - as many as 3,000 tons of the stuff. It’s made up of bits of old satellite, rockets and other man-made items that have been left behind.

Because of the speed at which these items are travelling, even a tiny screw can cause damage to the Space Station, so keeping track of all the pieces has become a major undertaking.

The question is: Will they put them on sharks?

​"Small pieces of space junk," Lilly!  I don't know what you've "encountered" throughout your life as far as "nether-regions" are concerned?!  However, the junk (regardless of size) should not be in pieces!  With that said; let's reference this excerpt from the article..."Because of the speed at which these items are travelling, even a tiny screw can cause damage to the Space Station, so keeping track of all the pieces has become a major undertaking."  Hmm..  It appears that the Space Station can be "damaged" emotionally, fairly easily from a wee bit of screwing!
