We told you last week about the big-name NASA scientists who are in Green Bay this week as part of the National Space Grant Directors meeting, hosted by the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium (headquartered here on campus). NBC 26 took advantage of this first-ever Midwest meeting for the national group, catching up with NASA’s Frank Six of the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., to talk about space junk. Debris from a dead satellite could enter Earth’s atmosphere as soon as Friday, though Six said getting hit by the stuff is extremely unlikely. You can watch the story here.
