Satellites orbiting earth right now. it is kind of insane when we think about how many satellites there are out there, watching us, touching themselves gently a future Wall e or Maybe saturn who fucking knows

i never knew where to start with that show! Is it just "Battlestar Galactica, season 1" or was there a show just called "Battlestar"? i know they made "caprica" as a prequel series....

it goes battlestar galactica then galactica 1980 then battlestar galactica, then you can go on to watch caprica. i highly recommend bsg, then newer series, the old series are good but there isnt much of them, galactica 1980 is bad but you only have to suffer 10 episodes if you want to watch it too.

Kerbal space program. It's worth paying for.

My low kerbin orbit is just littered with junk it's really very, very annoying.

you can fix that by setting junk to 0 in the options. It doesn't add much to the game anyways and it only looks bad.

Yeah I like to play with as much realism as I can. If I cant design a system that leaves no debris then I should suffer from my ****** planning.

It only adds realism to the game. If you wanna destroy the junk you gotta clean it out. You can do this by docking a satellite with an ion drive to the junk and burning in retrograde until it de-orbits.

i have multiple un-manned craft orbiting the sun...though they do not transmit....and they won't be on trajectory to re-enter kerbin's atmosphere...also, i launched a 3 man craft the other day....4 years and not a single pass close enough for re-entry.....2 looked worried....1 was screamin his head off in fascination all 4 years

i think there should be a clean-up crew in space so we can get all of the unused satellites and either reuse them, recycle them or donate them to museums

Do you know how much that would cost?

it's not so much about the cost, more about the idea. many years from now, once a moon colony is made, we could follow this idea with less expense

also there's an american inventor who designed a machine that turns almost any solid object into fuel that's so clean that you can easily confuse the petrol form for water and the diesel form for applejuice.
also it's designed to run off the dangerous chemicals it makes, so instead of polluting the atmosphere, it produces water vapour

It would be too expensive.
I think it would cost more to do all this than to just build a new satellite.
It would ultimately not be worth it, I think.

What?

It's not a matter of finding willing people, anyone on earth would jump at the chance to go to space, even if it were just to clean up space debris...

It would be cheaper to de-orbit them and allow them to burn up on re-entry than it would be to try and bring them back safely.

i htought that maybe we could send out a really strong magnet, but then that would end the working ones and the famous hubble telescope

Ah, the hubble is old news, they're going to send up a new one soon that will be an order of magnitude more powerful. And it'll be able to take long exposure infrared pictures.

bloody hell... even the hubble lasted this long; if they make the new one in the same way, it just might live past expectations as well!

The one they're building is a brute. It's mirror is huge and it's going to come pre-installed with angry birds.

maybe it does suck, but right now i'm writing a short novel based on somewhat screwy physics and it takes place in the future with some awesome advances in technology such as making an alloy that grabs dark energy in the surroundings and uses that to push itself around an electromagnet to create an infinite amount of energy but is limited to 10kw and when charging, charges 2kw an hour (so it's not OP'd). this nifty machine fits in your hand, can make EMPs, EM fields, microgravity, antigravity, etc
