We, human beings, are so dirty that not only we pollute our planet, if not also we feel the need of filling the space with garbage too.
It is for that a Russian aerospace corporation is building a spacecraft to collect the debris that are turning around our planet. This “garbage-ship” will be in charge of collecting remains of forgotten satellites, rockets and spaceships.
Interviewing a candidate applying for a job, he told me:
“It is the first time that, for working as a dustman, you need to have high qualifications on engineering, to speak several languages and a special aerospace license for driving.”
Pollution in our planet is one of the big problems that we must face. We create a lot of products for the welfare of people, but these products generate garbage when they are not useful for us. Similar situation happens in space, with the inconvenient that those debris are more difficult to collect and remain turning around and around our planet, even for years.
