Space scrapyard

Hello everybody.

I'm not sure this is the right place to post the following text. I've always been fascinated by the ISS, and sometimes I daydream of different aspects of this adventure.

The following text is prompted by the fact that a lot of material is lost in the functioning of the ISS, and in space programs in general, so I tried to imagine how to resolve the issue.
