    I saw this on a programme recently..shocking how much is out there! Not as if it can be recycled!!

      True… There must be some way to tidy it all up, though… I know a lot of it will eventually burn up in the atmosphere, but there will still be loads of it left. Perhaps they should invest in some great big magnet, or drag a massive net behind the next spaceship to orbit the Earth…
