    Interesting site. But that's no secret. Space has become a trash heap.

    One of the more interesting "visits" by the Mars Opportunity rover was the impact site of its own heat shield, discarded as the main lander approached the surface.

    Now THAT'S a piece of space trash complete with adjacent springs and debris.
