Duck and Cover!

...so there's a giant satellite falling to Earth today. Watch out. Read about it here. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be a good enough reason to go home early from work. :)

Do you ever stop to think about how much junk is floating around up there? To an alien visitor, we must seem like the interstellar equivalent of a trailer with old appliances and cars on blocks in the lawn.

Makes you proud to be human. I'm reminded of the short-lived 1978 TV show Quark, in which the hero operates a space-garbage scow.
