Nasa claims the possibility of collisions is "small" but it has already happened.
Donald Kessler predicted this back in 1978 and made of rough prediction of 2 collisions by 2009
It seems he should get credit for predicting this over 30 years ago
It seems that NASA managment might be ignoring or paying minor lip service (again) a potentially devastating problem.as they did in the 2 shuttle disasters, possibly claiming "ooopss we just didn't think it could happen""
