RightWingWacko: That's find for Ferrous metals, but I believe much of the junk is non-ferrous metal, for which a magnet will be of little use.
grinding_journalist: Oh wow, someone has finally engineered a way around the basic problem of doing anything in space (scale) and designed a net with the thousands of square miles of area it would need to cover to have any appreciable effect? Cool, I wonder what...(reads TFA)it will unreel a wire net around 300 meters long thatAh, So they haven't figured that one out yet. Have fun with your space toothbrush, guys. I appreciate the effort./no really, I do//necessary baby steps and all

FrancoFile: That's a very cool idea. Be interesting to see what tether dynamics happen with that net.
Valiente: FrancoFile: That's a very cool idea. Be interesting to see what tether dynamics happen with that net.In light of how few ferric metals are typically employed in satellites, it would be interesting indeed.
Far Cough: I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space.
Sqrxz: How do I read this in Japanese? :P
