    It's just a matter of time you know... if enough people go there, it's just a waiting matter before:
      - space hippies go collect garbage (and re-invent the cradle2cradle concept, making nice new stuff from spacejunk);
      - greenpeace goes there with big solarsail-made-into-banners;
      - Al Gore will say he invented space and then make a movie about how terrible the whole spacejunk problem is;
      - We will see spacejunk-sceptics;
      And when they are all up in arms, here on /. we will discuss the next big thing... terraforming Mars. Someone will say that is a bad Idea, and I would say: It's just a matter of time you know... if enough people go there, it's just a waiting matter before:
      - Space hippies will go there hugging the marstrees
      - Greenpeace will go there and... well you get the point huh? :-D
