Thar she blows!

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---Opening from book five of Moby Dick- unpublished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

I guess space is the new vast wasteland
