Newscaster: And now for our main news story tonight
on "Space News."
There are currently 17,000 objects in orbit around Earth.
Scientists are hoping to send up a special satellite
to attach a propellant kit
to each one of these pieces of debris
and send them into the Earth's atmosphere to be destroyed!
Jim's there now!
What's it like?
Jim: My face is melting off!
Newscaster: That's fantastic, Jim!
See you next time for more "Space News"!
