You know what it's a wonder with all this debris floating around up there the ISS doesn't hit one now and again. And the speed that some of those anomalies are travelling at there wouldn't be a lot left of the ISS. Still as Wayne Hale said. We have always found that they are not a danger to us. LOL

A couple of months ago, Space Station Commander and Canadian superhero Chris Hadfield tweeted this image from space...

Here’s Hadfield’s tweet:

While it’s probably not great that there’s now a small hole in the solar array of the space station, it’s much better that there’s not a small hole in the hull of the space station.

So in case anyone was wondering whether we still need a better plan for dealing with space debris…I mean, it seems like probably yes, right?

Of course NASA has it's own "Debris Program"...
