CBS Sunday Morning opened with a story (6m 17s) by correspondent David Pogue on "how companies are working to create ways to clean up space before disaster happens. The amount of debris in low-Earth orbit" is on a steady increase, "putting satellites and the International Space Station in danger of colliding" with bits and pieces of stuff that we essentially treat as litter(aka space debris).. Even the tiniest bits pose hazards.

Some photographs of damage are featured in this story.
