The big bang is just a regular black hole, in reverse

Interesting idea, not sure how much evidence there is for this but nice to play the universe backwards and see how it compares to the black holes speckled within.
Pay for goods and services with plastic waste

Offering cash or goods and services in exchange for plastic waste is a great incentive to encourage people to recycle!
Space And Sustainability Should Align

With more investors focused on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, satellite imagery may provide them with key data on the environmental impact of company activities. Satellite applications include monitoring greenhouse-gas emissions from companies and regions, helping utilities optimize renewable energy infrastructure and mining data to project how climate change could affect particular industries.
“ESG is becoming table stakes for businesses, and satellite imagery helps fill the data gap,” says Jonas. “Developing technologies from both public and private companies could offer a new channel of information for investors interested in pursuing both sustainability and returns.”

China’s space broom isn’t the Death Star super laser. It’s an orbiting satellite with a laser only powerful enough to heat up pieces of space junk, so that they change course burn up in the atmosphere.Depositphotos
floating crafts, harpoons and nets. Sounds a bit of a low tech solution – more like a fishing trip than escaping our world.
Heh, you would still need a space broom to clean up the stray silly string.
last year i read that india was likely to compete with china for being the biggest litterbugs in the solar system. They’ve had plenty of practice.
I guess the Chinese aren’t using silly string then.
Now its a count up for who is the worst space criminal (organization).
“The helicon plasma thruster is an electrodeless system, which allows it to undertake long operations performed at a high power level.” says Takahashi, “This discovery is considerably different to existing solutions and will make a substantial contribution to future sustainable human activity in space.”
People are working on a variety of solutions, but someone needs to stop the culprits making it worse now.
You know like death the inevitable solution will be, wait for it… – Space Tax
In a recent study, economists proposed a Pigovian tax that would discourage the excessive launch of satellites and use money from the tax of satellites that are launched to pay for the removal of space debris.
recommended read “There are many possible means of reducing the debris hazard to future space operations. These include actions taken as a spacecraft enters orbit (e.g., tethering rather than jettisoning lens caps and despin devices), during operations (e.g., reducing the amount of refuse ejected from crewed missions), and after its functional lifetime (e.g., depleting energy sources or moving the spacecraft into a disposal orbit). Some methods would cost very little, whereas others might be economically prohibitive for some missions. Their effectiveness also will vary, not only from method to method but also in how well a particular method will work in different orbital regions and with different space systems.”
Any space junk deniers our there?
Not sure how true some of this is about space junk. who knows the truth? and who tells it?
gonna keep getting worse. glad people are talking about it though.
serious solutions are what’s needed. and soon, because if we don’t get ourselves off this stinking ball because of the crap we spread around us, we will deserve to die quickly alone, like most other life forms out there did, probably.
Or use a net, a claw, grab it, laser it and urr.yep, sillystring
