    Junk problem solved, or at least maintained.

    ..when all orbiting payloads self destruct into pieces--> what left from them still scatters in the space.. how can you tell the problem solved?

    It doesn't matter if its big or small, all space junk are dangerous.

    I don't know how it did that... I typed "It doesn't matter if its big or small, all space junk are dangerous".
