        I wonder how I can apply for a job like this?

        The buildup of space debris orbiting the Earth, which poses a threat to spacecraft and the environment, has reached a critical point, scientists say.

        The space junk trend no longer can be reversed by full compliance with mitigation measures now in place; it will get worse without more-aggressive action such as active debris removal, or ADR. And that just might pose the biggest engineering challenge of the 21st century, according to J.-C. Liou of the Orbital Debris Program Office at NASA's Johnson Space Center.

        "As the international community gradually reaches a consensus on the need for ADR, the focus will shift from environment modeling to completely different challenges: technology development, systems engineering, and operations," Liou explained in the July edition of NASA's Orbital Debris Quarterly News, issued by his office in Houston.

          Interesting story Nan.  It makes you wonder how much junk really is up there and its a good thing they will do something about it.

          "Today, most of the good people are afraid to be good. They strive to be broadminded and tolerant. It is fashionable to be tolerant but mostly tolerant of evil and this new code has reached the proportions of demanding intolerance of good."

          I know they thought blowing up somethings would help, but all it did was make a large area unflyable now. I believe they tried it on a satilitte and it's still up there, but what was a 200 foot problem, became a 1 MILE problem as the debris just spread out....

          I have done a ton of traveling in my life and have hated sitting in the airport and every take off.  Every one!

          I can't imagine the noice and turbulence of going to space.  I don't think I would do it if someone offered me a million bucks, even if it meant finding something up there nobody ever knew about.
