NASA Space station manuevers to avoid Chines space junk ...

updated: March 22

* The entire space station complex had to move out of the way for approximately 3 hours (using thrusters to create a slow drag affect) from a very small piece of a 10 year old Chinese satellite rocket motor. The piece of space junk measured just 4-inch (10-centimeter).

- The frequency of space junk impact has "suddenly" become a recurring issue.

Space Junk funk ... Space Station under attack... Again.

Looks like another collision is possible (last report: Feb 12).

It appears that "tactical" efforts will not alone be sufficient going forward. For now, it will work. Tomorrow who knows.

What does NASA have in mind?
Will new NASA Space Defense weapons be devised / accelerated to shoot down the possibility of collision with multiple pieces of junk in space? What kind of weapon would this be? Photon? Gas? Particle? Laser? Nuclear?

It appears that the frequency of collision with such "high velocity" debris will only increase.
