>> pauley: space junk, debris, large and small, spinning uncontrollably in an increasingly cluttered universe. it is a lot more than unsightly. it is dangerous. david pogue reports on a collision course in the skies. >> reporter: if you're going to be a character in a space movie -- >> keep your hands down...
7:07 am
>> reporter: -- you've got to watch out for space junk. everyone knows that. it seems to happen a lot. >> debris from the missile strike has caused a chain reaction, hitting ot other satellites -- >> reporter: but whatnot everyone knows is that plot twist is not fiction anymore. >> i got a call from my chief satellite officer, and he said we've lost track of our satellite vehicle number 33, somewhere over siberia. it may have been hit by something. >> reporter: mat matt dersh is the c.e.o. in 2009 a d satellite crashnt of iridiums.
7:08 am
how bad was the damage? >> it completely took out our satellite. there is estimated to be 130 million tiny pieces, smaller than the size of your thum thumb out there. at 17,000 miles per hour, they can do damage. >> reporter: the litter has become a constant damage to the international space shuttle. in may, they discovered a hole in the station's giant robotic arm. fortunately, the arm still works. but it was a lucky strike, this time. >> the air force and space force are constantly monitoring the debris in lower orbit. >> reporter: i spoke to these two astronauts in april. >> sometimes we have to move the station, sometimes we don't. it is something we're always worrying about up here, and something we have to be mindful of. >> reporter: and if there is no time to move the space shuttle -- >> then you have to take shelter.
7:09 am
get in basically your rescue vehicle, and be prepared the station. >> reporter: peggy whitson has spent more time in space than any american. >> my second flight, i think we had to do one debris avoidance maneuver, and we did three or four on my last one. there is a greatly increasing number of objects out there. >> there is an old saying that space is big. not anymore. it is getting smaller and smaller by the day. >> reporter: john crassidis is a professor at the university of buffalo, who specializes in space debris. like many experts, he is worried about the kessler syndrome. >> donald kessler was an engineer at nasa, and he predicted that debris would hit other debris, which would cause more debris. i think in 50 years, if we don't do something the collision will be so great, it is not worth putting satellites up there. you definitely don't want to do that. >> reporter: what are the proposals for cleaning up our act up there? >> there are many proposals right now.
7:10 am
unfotunately, none are feasible. >> reporter: that doesn't mean people aren't trying. in 2018, an experimental european satellite called the "remove debris," success ensnared a piece of debris in a net. and a start-up called astroscale has proposed things. >> we all know it has to be done. chris blackerby is the chief operating officer. in march, the company launched a satellite called elsa-d. it was fitted with a special magnetic plate. this summer, it will try to grab a fake dead satellite. >> there is an arm that has mas nets magnets on the endf it, and it will go and attach to that satelliter:ven ia eve figurut a way to pay for it, how much can astroscale really
7:11 am
fix? >> we're never going to remove all of the debris, but we think we need to take these steps. >> reporter: iridium's matt is not convinced. >> technology can help, but it can't help in a big way, to make a big dent into space. >> reporter: meanwhile, our primary satellite traffic lanes are about to get a lot more crowded. company's like elon musk's company is in the process of launching satellites. >> many other governments in the world have plans to create their own mega co consolations. there is not even the simplest thing of ensuring that people don't fly at the same altitudes. you're asking for problems. >> reporter: if you could wave your magic wand and solve the problem, what would the pieces of that solution look like?
7:12 am
>> we think the most important thing is don't create item whilee'l tro t a technical solution for it. if you have a problem with a satellite, don't launch another one. and there has to be a lot more cooperation and coordination between everyone who is in space. everyone has to communicate the information. you can imagine perhaps the russians and chinese have a problem coordinating, given all of their satellite communications, to the air force. >> reporter: this is sort of an age-old human story, whether it is us dumping plastic or dumping chemicals, we don't really think through the detriment that we leave behind. >> you're right. it is so-called tragedy of thes. global orbit is a common resource that we all have to protect for the future resource that we all have to protect for the future because we don't get another one. ♪ ♪ we're here to open new doors

art piece. >> reporter: it does look like something you would find on a pa pirate's ship. >> reporter: the bottles have bonded with the ocean bottle, attracting plenty of curious, and perhaps thirsty sea creatures. it caused this section of the santa barbara channel nature's perfect cellar. because there is little oxygen and light, the tonight remains a constant 54°, and ocean currents gently rock the bottles. so the motion of the ocean is kind of cradling these things? >> exactly. imagine what the bottles do here for a year. the whales are singing to them. >> reporter: the whales are singing to ey get cradled by the ocean and lullabyed by the
