pretty sure there are quite a few countries working on approval to use ground based lasers to nudge space debris into the void

among other things

NASA has this  {#Arrowd}

The Orbital Debris Quarterly News (ODQN) is a quarterly publication of the NASA Orbital Debris Program Office. The ODQN publishes some of the latest events in orbital debris research, offers orbital debris news and statistics, and presents project reviews and meeting reports, as well as upcoming events. Illustrating graphs, charts, photographs, and drawings support the articles and provide a detailed understanding of the topics. Each issue is available as a downloadable PDF file.

Two Dead Satellites May Collide Tonight. That's Really, Really Bad.

FTA: In 1978, NASA scientist Donald Kessler published a landmark paper on the potential impacts of space junk collisions in Earth's orbit. He predicted a grim future in which a chain of collisions could send an impenetrable wave of debris out across low-Earth orbit, rendering the rest of the universe out of reach to humanity for decades.

THE ASTRONOMICAL COMPANION

A general guide to astronomy; some say it should be called the Astronomical Treasury. Same large page-size as the Astronomical Calendar. Begins with an “Overview of Astronomy”and pictures that almost force you to understand coordinate systems and orientation in space.

This Year's Perseid Meteor Shower Is Going To Be Quite A Show — Here's How To Watch

  • Think about having some caffeine beforehand, she suggests, to stay awake for the late-night show.

As Nell notes, the best time to catch the shower is between midnight and dawn. It'll be easiest to see the meteors after the moon sets in the early hours of Friday, according to NASA.

You should be able to see meteors at some point over the next few days around the world — though as EarthSky explains, the number of meteors seen in the Southern Hemisphere typically isn't as high.

If you live in a big city with a lot of light pollution (or somewhere cloudy), there are still ways to watch the show. NASA says there will still be meteor activity on Friday and Saturday. And if that doesn't work out, you can still watch a live stream of the shower here. NASA will be live overnight on Thursday and Friday, starting at 10 p.m.

Cool light show going on through the end of the month. Jupiter and Venus will appear closer and closer and nearly converge on the 30th. They appear in the West just after sunset. Venus has been especially bright this year.

Here's a link to an hour long discussion of New Horizons.

Marc's part is at around 51 minutes, where he explains why the Hubble is so important and how he identifies Kuiper belt objects.
Previously, he was using software to get pictures of Pluto that were two pixels big. 
Mind boggling - and real world.

I'm not even an astrophysicist, and I'm freaking excited. I can only imagine how Marc feels...
