I was reading my latest science gazette, and saw that the government has ear marked millions to research ways to recycle space junk. I just can't imagine how that would work.
There's a new job listed in the adverts today
If you've got the smarts, apply, just say "Yea"
Round up yer little posse of your closest friends
That you wouldn't mind spending time that transcends
'Cos, you'll be together a while, they better be good friends
As you enjoy this ride and reap the dividends.
As you circle the globe at fifteen times warp speed
There is a whole lot of risk, that's guaranteed.
It's abundantly clear that humans are failing
To pick up the junk they are taking into space
There's a celestial hodgepodge of nuts and bolts
Decommisssioned satellites and rocket ship parts
They'll stay in orbit, don't panic, chances are good
that it wont fall on your neighbourhood.
'Cos, we'd all go together in a while, so why not be friends
As you enjoy this ride on earth and reap the dividends.
As you live on the planet and enjoy your satellite news
There is a whole lot of Netflix and sat nav you haven't used.
So the job, invent a garbage collection system
The problem, it's going pretty fast to capture it
You need to sneak up somehow and slow it down
Invent a garbage can that won’t explode
And capture these ticking time bombs in outer space.
So if you have a solution like a laser beam
That will latch on and pull it in, You’re in
or a vacuum with enough power to suck it up, hey you’re in luck
Maybe you space cowboys can use a big lasso To haul it in, it's not too soon
To clean up the atmosphere, one piece of space junk at a time.
