+ - Australia Pioneers Solution To Space-Junk Congestion->

Submitted by beaverdownunder
beaverdownunder (1822050) writes "An Australian company is proposing to use laser technology to solve the growing problem of space junk at the fraction of the time and cost of other methods.

The company's CEO, Craig Smith, says blasting space junk with lasers could be a viable alternative to costly satellite removal of space junk.

Mr Smith says their plan, to shoot high-energy lasers at space debris to move them out of harm's way, is more practical, cost-effective and timely.

"You can't really destroy it unless you can bring it down into the Earth's orbit and burn it up," Mr Smith said."
