“The crash of two satellites has generated an estimated tens of thousands of pieces of space junk that could circle Earth and threaten other satellites for the next 10,000 years, space experts said Friday.”

Oh man, that doesn’t sound good at all. This was just recent news a week or two ago and still has some people shaken. What do you think is going to happen? I think the Space Program is facing a little bit more of a problem now that we have shrapnel floating out there and is now going to be a constant threat to anything in orbit…

Not looking too good for NASA.

That isn’t good news at all. :(

Hopefully they will be able to send something up that can retrieve the majority of the pieces and reduce the chances of more harm coming out of the crash in the future.

Yes, no kidding! Small sharp pieces moving at insane speeds in orbit around the planet is not good at all. A single piece of hay can get lodged through a huge tree due to wind speeds in a tornado, but can you imagine metal pieces through metal? Not good at all!

I think that American Government/NASA have made some arrangements to bring those debris to earth. They said they would bring them down in deserts of nevada.
