Submission + - Pentagon needs someone to pick up space trash (gizmag.com)

And that's not counting the hundreds of thousands of bits of junk too small to track track. Little wonder the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has put out a call for someone — anyone — to come up with a way to effectively remove orbital debris.
