    There was a really cool anime made about this problem. I forgot the name. However, I hope we clean this up before it gets worse and we can't exit earth anymore.

    It's alarmist nonsense. The ISS or any other vehicle, manned or unmanned, has as much chance of colliding with spacejunk as two mosquitoes flying around in the Grand Canyon have of hitting each other.

    The video showed a close call. Explain that: that wasn't two mosquitoes in the Grand Canyon.
