    Space travel is the most exciting adventure for humanity, but in an irony of history we may stop ourselves from going into space the more we do it. With every rocket launched we are creating a deadly trap for mankind.

      STOP KILLING THINGS IN YOUR VIDEOS MY LITTLE SISTER LITERALLY CRIES AND ALMOST EVERY SINGLE VIDEO HAS SOME FORM OF MURDER. Im am trying to educate her through your videos but I'm about to stop recommending this to friends and kids as educational material because all kids can focus on is all the heads blowing up, animals murdering each other, and basically violence. Yes it's funny to adults but not to kids who are sensitive to cute little animals killing each other.

    Here's a idea, it would create a new job market. How about sending people up there to clean up all the junk with Robots to help. Then they could send all the junk on a disposable rocket and ship it to the Sun to be destroyed. Look it's just a crazy idea that just might work. Maybe someone with money and technology will read this and Come up with a idea to clean up space. Good Luck. 👍

    If scientists are so damn smart, why not just create a massive super-powerful magnet to drag all that metal debris down to Earth?!

    • Gaurav Rana
      Gaurav Rana 4 ngày trước

      I could be harmful for us too...
      It can attract other large metallic things from earth to itself and also some asteroids have components of metal so it might possible it can pull a MASSIVE asteroid.
      It would be mass destruction.

  • Perseus Wong

    What about an orbital magnetic mop that attracts the debris. And as it gets heavier, it falls to the earth and burns up in the atmosphere.

    • RandomName Last Name
      RandomName Last Name 5 ngày trước

      When something gets heavier, it doesn't fall out of orbit otherwise the ISS would be doomed from the start. A magnetic mop with an orbital sail could work, being a combination of the net/harpoon and magnetic pusher.

    low earth orbit and geosynchronous are thousands of miles apart so the only thing in the danger zone is the iss( which has armor) and other craft at that altitude.
