There's lots of junk floating in orbit about the Earth! 11 examples can be found in this game. See if you can capture them all by clicking on them as they pass by, but be careful not to capture too many things that aren't junk--if you get three strikes, you'll have to start over! (Hint: When a satellite stops working, it becomes space junk!) Please send us your comments and let us know what you think of this game!
