Fighting space junk: UT, IBM project aims to bring order to orbital chaos – Business – Austin American-Statesman

It’s getting crowded in Earth’s orbital space.

More than half a million man-made objects — ranging from as small as a speck to as large as a school bus — are orbiting the planet at a variety of speeds and paths. Many of those devices are no longer active — space junk, if you will — and only about 26,000 satellites are being tracked.

Still, various governments and private companies have plans to send 20,000 more objects into orbit within the next five years.

Satellites serve a variety of key uses, from national security to keeping the Internet online. But for the most part space traffic — and the resulting debris — is being tracked imperfectly, inconsistently or not at all.

“There are no sort of laws or rules right now in the space. It’s the Wild West. Whoever can put stuff up, it’s yours,” said Naeem Altaf, an Austin-based

Verdant Power

Over the years, New York City’s East River has been commemorated in song, provided iconic shots for movies and even inspired the composition of poetry.

From ferries taking commuters to and from work to larger ships transporting cargo, this body of water — a tidal strait which has suffered greatly from the effects of pollution over the years — can be a bustling hive of activity.

For a good while now, it’s also been home to a scheme focused on the development of tidal power, a form of renewable energy which could have an important role to play in the years ahead.

Verdant Power’s Roosevelt Island Tidal Energy (RITE) project, as it’s known, has been in development since 2002. Towards the end of October, the initiative took another
