Space Has a Big Garbage Problem

I hadn't spent a whole lot of time thinking about the "space garbage" problem, but after watching this Scishow video, I'm thinking about it now. Fortunately, Hank explained things in such a way that I'm calm again. If you haven't thought about what's happening to all those defunct satellites and other items we've launched into space, you may find this interesting. I know I did.

I actually first read about this problem about ten years ago. It's bad enough we pollute this planet.

That's for sure. We need to be much more careful about how we treat the earth (and space and any other planets we travel to).
