"Maties. Those space harpooners have yet to encounter the Great White Floating Cloud of Junk. It's huge and terrifying, cost me an eye, it did, the only time I ever encountered the beast."

---Opening from book five of Moby Dick- unpublished

Prediction: The next project for Marie Kondo:

"Fung Shui Space for Space".

And remember, if that space isn't bringing you joy, get rid of it.

Yesterday’s Federal Register (Their motto: We Make C-Span Interesting) included proposed regulations on space junk and propellants coming from the Federal Communications Commission. Not NASA
