Japan plans to create a giant magnetic
network capture space junk

The space appears to be an empty, vast area, but in fact, around the area around the earth is full of junk.The rubbish from the used rockets, abandoned the satellite to the missile parts, is multifarious, soon they will cause it difficult to launch the space shuttle.
Japan aerospace exploration agency (JAXA) has now joined in the production of fishing gear company Nitto system network co., LTD (Nitto Seimo), ready to build a huge "magnetic network", to "catch" space junk.The device for the first time test is expected to be at the end of February, when a rocket will be launched in Japan, the Japanese incense developed by researchers at the university of sichuan a man-made satellite into space.Once the satellite in orbit, it will release a 300 m long wire mesh, then it produces enough magnetic field to the adsorption of orbital debris.The net and its "fishing" will burn in the process of return to the earth's atmosphere.
For years, scientists have been worried about satellite is likely to hit the space junk.A hit there could be thousands of garbage, the potential risk of these fragments exist other satellite.In orbit about 22000 size is enough to make the people on the ground to track objects, and numerous smaller garbage, they will is very important for manned spacecraft and satellites.Television signals, weather forecasting, GPS navigation, and international telephone connection is risk impact of some of the services.NASA said in a report recently, the number of space debris around the earth has reached a "tipping point".
A commercial communications satellite in 2009, the United States, and one has scrapped Russian military communications satellite collided in Siberia.Up to at least 15000 miles per hour (24100 kilometers) of collision speed, causing them to produce 1500 pieces of space junk, forcing the international space station had to change course, to give way.
