    Researchers at the Australian National University (ANU) are finding new uses for the laser-based technology that sharpens telescope imagery called adaptive optics and it just might help mitigate the world’s growing space debris problem. Purpose-built lasers could give derelict satellites a slight ‘push’ of photons, imparting just enough energy to change the debris’s …
