Space Junk is the first half of the twenty-seventh episode of Ready Jet Go!.

Synopsis

After learning about space junk, the kids are determined to help do their part to clean up their 'space neighborhood.' They meet up with Uncle Zucchini, a long-time galaxy garbage man! Using Bortronian technology, they start a cleanup. During the course of the day, our kids learn that recycling is necessary both on Earth and in space!

Plot

Characters

Learning Goals

The outer space region around Earth swarms with millions of pieces of man-made space junk that create potential hazards. Objects as small as 4 inches can be seen by radar or optical telescopes on Earth. Cleaning the debris is a challenge. Trips to larger objects could remove them from orbit, but that's expensive. Another proposal is using lasers to provide a path-changing push that wouldn't damage the object.
