Add one more item in orbit for NASA to track. Astronaut Sunita Williams accidentally dropped her camera during a 7-hour spacewalk. Too bad there’s no lost and found in outer space.
Her camera is now just 1 of the 21,000+ pieces of space trash larger than 4 inches (10 centimeters) and half a million bits of junk between 1 cm and 10 cm are estimated to be circling the planet right now.

Here’s a video clip of the incident. Anyone know how much money those fancy NASA space cameras cost?
