Our Junk Our Destination

John emailed me this interesting article about the International Space Station and all of the garbage we've left floating around the planet in the last half-century of ever-more-tentative excursions into the great beyond. And he summed it up with the perfect comment:

"Our exploration of space is like the guy who never went to sea to explore foreign lands but often goes to the beach to litter the shore with his bottles, food wrappers and shit."

I couldn't agree more.
