Now, let me start off by saying I know very little about space travel, but it fascinates me!
Having just finished watching Apollo 13, I thought about the possibility, feasability and point of ever trying to retrieve equipment used on previous space missions...
I suppose the Apollo 13 mission is a perfect example, if they were able to retrieve the module with the oxygen tank which exploded, they could answer a lot of questions. Do you think it would be worthwhile?
Can NASA track these old objects and do they actively check up on the position of them to avoid them on future missions?
Insight into this is much appreciated
