More space junk will make our spaceships stronger

A recent NY Times editorial complains the recent collision of two near-earth satellites does not "bode well for the long-term safety of space operations." Pound360 disagrees. We say bring on the space junk. Tons of thousands of it. The more there is, the stronger the armor we'll have to build on our ships; and the more powerful the shields we'll need. This is good. The more powerfully equipped our space fleet's armor and shields, the better our chances of taking on Klingon War Birds, Tie Fighters and Cylon Raiders and other adversaries waiting for us beyond the moons of Jupiter.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
