For only $880,000, you can do your part contributing to low-orbit space Junk

Taken from Physorg.

” Once upon a time it was a letter in a bottle. Now a Japanese company is offering the chance to buy a personal satellite to launch a love letter or personal treasures into space…Until now, a satellite was something ordinary people could not afford to buy,” company executive Ichiro Koike told a press conference Thursday.

“But space has always been mysterious and pure. That is why people feel romantic about it,” he said, suggesting a husband might send a love letter into space in the capsule instead of buying expensive jewelry.”

With low-orbit space being peppered with this junk (remember the golf-ball incident?), it makes you wonder.

I must say, though; as an alternative to “expensive jewelry,” this definately takes the cake.
