After recent class discussions over the pacific garbage patch, and what we should do with this trash in an effort to clean it up, I've been doing some more reading.

A few students pointed out that we could just shoot the trash into space. Some other students suggested this was a bad idea and really doesn't solve the problem.

I found this article that might give us some background as to why it's not a good idea for us to shoot more debris into the solar system. Read the article and then tell us what YOU think!
