Given decades of orbital space launches around the world for whatever reason, there are now massive constellations of many hundreds of thousands of pieces of cast-off hardware and fragments of hardware whose orbits have not yet decayed to the point of atmospheric destruction. Most of the larger of these objects are currently tracked by U.S. military and other space agencies, so that their paths will not significantly interfere with or jeopardize future or existing missions. Is there any plan, however, to begin, via controlled or autonomous 'collection', to intercept and reliably eliminate (decelerate them to a faster demise, etc.) the larger of these known objects (deceased satellites, spent maneuvering vehicles, remains of larger lift stages, etc.), or even somehow to entrap the smaller of them, at some point, and thus make orbital space at multiple ranges less hazardous?
