Chinese scientists disclose plans for a space waste laser station.

There have been a few suggestions for getting rid of space junk, such as collecting trash, crushing it, or bombarding it from Earth. However, this new idea is considering the most impressive and effective.

Chinese researchers have successfully simulated an orbital laser station that can pick up small pieces of waste (less than 4 inches long). The system also approaches and destroys space waste 20 times faster than the speed of light per second in 2 minutes, either deflects it out of danger orbit or keeps it moving to an extremely hot point in the atmosphere to destroy.

The team has determined that this Station will be feasible. However, this is not just a simple problem in which everything is building them – there are many questions to be answered. How many stations do you need like this, and where to put them? Who built them? And if China builts them, how to ensure other countries that this Station is a Space Station and not a weapon? It means we need a significant plan, and international cooperation is required before it can become a simulation project.

However, there are many motivations to make this project come true. Space debris is becoming a severe problem so that ISS International Space Station members must always be wary of even leaving the Station immediately if in danger.
