I think we'll need something like a big magnet to clump up all of that junk then hit the ball out of orbit.
he successfully allayed the fears exhibited by the vast majority of UN ambassadors from other countries. He and the articles explained that sunlight pressure would cause the dipoles to only remain in orbit for a short period of approximately three years. The international protest ultimately resulted in a consultation provision included in the 1967 Outer Space Treaty.StatusAs of 2008, several clumps of the needles are still in orbit, and occasionally re-enter.
Anyway, having a bunch of objects in a well defined orbit, all sharing a similar orbit, and I would think one could make a plan to capture them.
