radared

Bucky Barnes has an internal Steve Rogers Radar. It generally tells him the following:

a. Steve is in trouble… AGAIN (and needs back up)
b. Where Steve is at that given moment ( it has never failed him yet)

In the seventy odd years that the Winter Soldier’s handlers had him, they found that the “conditioning” never lasted long and that their Asset would inevitably and inexplicably head for some place cold and snowy.

(They could not know that there was a part of the Soldier that was steering him towards the final resting place of the Valkyrie, where his beloved Captain lay in his frozen sleep.)

Once free of his tormentors and with his mind slowly becoming his own again, old instincts could not help but take over.

“Damn it, punk, can’t you stay out of trouble for more than five minutes,” Bucky mutters as he sights Crossbones about to take a shot at Steve.

Crossbones goes down.

Of course, it doesn’t take Bucky too long to show himself to his Captain.

Steve had been waiting long enough.

Radar guards against space debris

Space debris poses a growing threat to satellites and other spacecraft, which could be damaged in the event of a collision. A new German space surveillance system, scheduled to go into operation in 2018, will help to prevent such incidents. The tracking radar is being developed by Fraunhofer researchers on behalf of DLR Space Administration.

Traffic congestion is also an issue in space where, in addition to the dense network of satellites, orbiting space debris is increasingly transforming the paths on which they travel into a junkyard populated with burnt-out rocket stages and fragments of disintegrated spacecraft. Scientists estimate that there are now some 20,000 particles of space junk measuring more than ten centimeters in diameter hurtling around Earth at an average velocity of 25,000 kilometers per hour, not counting the 700,000 or so particles with a diameter of between one and ten centimeters. Although small, these items of space debris are traveling so fast that they could easily damage or destroy an operational satellite. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that space debris has a tendency to multiply exponentially through a kind of snowball effect. Whenever two particles collide, they break up into a greater number of smaller particles. Unless preventive measures are taken, the rapid multiplication of space debris could soon put an end to spaceflight as we know it.
