Making Low Earth Orbit More Sustainable

A quick report for a Friday night:

We've all heard about the massive amounts of space debris floating around in low earth orbit and how it causes problems for space shuttles and future satellites. A new report on the BBC talks about a new satellite-based system that will "clean" low earth orbit and make space "more sustainable."

Now if only they could do something about the fuel used to get satellites up there in the first place... who else is waiting for the space elevator?
