This is CNN 10 of Carla's who's presenting our last show of the year. After today. We're scheduled to be back on January 6th, 2020. As we produced this show, the United Kingdom was awaiting the results of a national election. The biggest issue on the table is one you've heard about the Brexit, the British exit from the European Union. Britons voted to leave the 28 member union in the summer of 2016 but it's such a complicated process with such deep political divisions over it that it hasn't been completed yet. In October, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called for the election that took place yesterday. He's hoping his party, the Conservative Party, will win enough seats to push through his Brexit agreement with the European Union. The main opposition party, the Labour Party, wants to hold another vote on Brexit. There are other issues here, too. According to the Reuters news agency, Prime Minister Johnson wants the British government to spend more on education law enforcement in health care. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn wants more spending on government service is and higher taxes on Britain's with higher incomes. Going into the election, the polls indicated that the conservatives had the lead. CNN dot com will have the latest on how Britain's vote went. The European Space Agency is taking steps toward cleaning up a junk yard, the one that surrounds and orbits Earth. Since the Soviet Union launched the first artificial satellite in 1957 people have sent a lot of stuff into orbit and beyond, and they've left behind a lot of junk in the process. In fact, European scientists say that if we quit launching stuff into space altogether and we won't, the amount of space junk will still increase because of existing pieces smashing into each other. Clear space One is the name of a mission that will use a four armed robot in an effort to clean up space. It'll be on the hunt for part of the European rocket that was left in space and 2013. If everything works as planned, the robot will target the rocket part, latch onto it and then re enter Earth's atmosphere where everything will burn up. And if the mission's a success, more like it will be planned for bigger objects. This won't happen soon, though. The official launch date is set for 2025. But with so much garbage floating around up there, the Clear Space founder says there are more than 3000 failed satellites in orbit. Supporters say the time is right for projects like this and the others in development worldwide. The more we rocket into the heavens, 3 to 1 more junk and debris will leave behind, making it more dangerous for our spaceships on our satellites to move around the kidneys. We can clean it up in the heart of Tokyo, just a few miles away from this park on a quiet street. One company is trying to make space a little safer by making it a little cleaner. Imagine space for a second. It looks something like this, right? Not quite. According to space wizards like this guy. Hide him. This is more like it. A world surrounded by broken satellites, old rockets and space ship fragments and, well, just junk. You wouldn't believe there are thousands and thousands and thousands of pieces of space decorated that over 170 million pieces according to some estimates. Some of big others small, most of really small small, one that is there, like a paint flecks. But don't let size fool you in space. The smallest thing can have a catastrophic impact. Those flecks move an average of 40,000 kilometers an hour, and when they hit, they hit with the force of a hand grenade. Imagine that times 170 million. Naoko Yamazaki, Japan's second female astronaut, has seen the impact of Mr Firsthand. If the space separates, sir, it's It's bigger than one cinch meter less than a dime. It will go through the structure so it is at risk. That means dime sized debris to destroy a spaceship. But John isn't just a programme for astronauts. Impacts everyone on Earth to intelligence gathering electric grids. Just look at the GPS on your phone. That's why Mickey wants to make space clean so the kids don't know. Step one map. The mess Agencies like NASA track the big trash, but right now no one's really looking out for the small pieces. Satellite one maps the small stuff satellite to Nick named Elsa De will sweep up the big stuff like that in the wild. All really just magnets. Mickey's team will launch. The satellite is close to the selected piece of junk is possible. Special cameras and census was get even closer and magnets will do the rest. Then it'll be all programs to come back to Earth, where it'll burn up on re entry. If all goes according to plan, Astro Scale will send the first demo sweeper up in 2019 and from their companies can hire their own Elsa to sweep up whatever might be in their way. Big international agencies like the European Space Agency have also started developing ideas to clean up space. But Astro Scale is the world's first private company, giving it a try because it believes we will become ever more dependent on space. Someday people will probably go to Morris or more father Place. And let's not forget space tourism. But if you know you're gonna go to father beyond ours, we have to clear that crowded area. Teoh Mi might so risk Good luck. 12th Trivia. Which of these man made objects is the largest international space station? Bingham Canyon Mine, an American football field or the Spruce Goose Utah's Bingham Canyon. Mine is the biggest object on this list. But the I s s is the largest man made object in space with off the Falcon nine and Cardio Dragon transporting critical research to enable living and working in Earth orbit and in deep space. Simon, wake up. I'm waiting for your commands. You like it here with me? He's actually floating there. Brian. I am nice. He's accusing me of not being you. Get a perfect 10 out of 10. This has been our biggest year ever, and today's last segment is dedicated to everyone who stopped by CNN Center. It was 12 days before Christmas, and while I was working, I thought of the viewers who visited lurking here in the food court at the CNN building, where sometimes I'd be taking pictures and fielding their questions and comments, suggestions that matter, hearing the cheering and shouts and the chatter so grateful for all y'all who came for a visit.
