Garbage Men of the Future (1989)


This image is from Isaac Asimov's book Space Garbage, published in 1989 as part of the Library of the Universe series. The caption to the image appears below.

Low orbits are the most littered with space junk. Perhaps one day orbiting "garbage collectors" will be used to clean up these trash-filled orbits.

Isn't that image upside down? I suppose it doesn't matter in SPACE.

Or the failed 70's TV series Quark.
