That is most likely true.
I've really looked at this problem, couple of issues came up
A) Why did they choose Tungsten Carbide instead of Eglin steel. just does not seem as effective
B) unless the design is conical in nature, 30% of Ball bearings are going towards earth ( could be a lot more if it's a ball design or tube design )
C) in any case, upon a Kessler Syndrome happening, space exploration would stop for 25 to 50 years unless someone comes up with a way to clean up space ( maybe a world wide concerted effort with lasers to clear a basic launch path. )
so the next step is for someone to create the clean up device.
very interesting. Now let me just ask, cell phone camera's. Very very small, but I think I could mount a few 20 to 40 on a basic cube sat. which could be ridged. would that work as a basic concept? shoot up to the sky and act as a very big looking bug eye?
What this does seems to say ever so slightly to me, is, we need to algae bloom the ocean over 30 to 50 years, in some sort of way that will provide a layer to reduce and or bury the problem.
Knowing how not to pay taxes legally is not a crime. We should celebrate it, because it is the proof that the IRS and Congress needs to re-write bit's of the tax code so that everyone pays the a proportion.
Funny how political extremists always seem to be the first to embrace new technologies to further their agendas. Hitler for example used the latest magnetic tape recording technology of his days to appear as if he was doing live broadcast in a city while he was in another.
