CASE:
1AC (Inherency)…………………………………………………………………………………1-2 1AC (Plan) ………………………………………………………………………………………...3 1AC (Solvency) ……………………………………………………………………………………4 1AC (Advantage 1) ………………………………………………………………………………5-7 1AC (Advantage 2). …………………………………………………………………………......8-12

INHERENCY EXTENSIONS:
Space Debris has increased exponentially………………………………………………………...14 Won’t be cleaned up until too late………………………………………………………………..15 Space Debris Needs to be taken more seriously. …………………………………………………16 The time to reomve space debris is now………………………………………………………….17 Depleting funds will limit furture protection on satellites………………………………………...18 Space debris accumulates in LEO………………………………………………………………..19 Atmosphere losing ability to remove debris. ……………………………………………………..20 Man has limited ability to fix itself…………………………………………………………….….21 Earth is slowly cooling and losing its ability to remove debris ……………………………………22 Mitigation is not enough………………………………………………………………………….23 Space debris threatens US abilities to maintain dominance in Space……………………………...24

HARMS EXTENSIONS:
Space debris increasing and jeopardizing access to space…………………………………………26 Threats of collisions and lack of satellite spots increase without the removal of space debris…….27 We are reaching the tipping point………………………………………………………………...28 Threat to satellites……………………………………………………………………………….29 Space debris reached point where we can’t ignore any longer…………………………………….30 Danger is real…………………………………………………………………………………….31 Failure to address space debris limits future exploration………………………………………….32

SOLVENCY EXTENSIONS:
Type needing to be removed is Large debris……………………………………………………..34 Removing large debris key to solving space debris……………………………………………….35 Reducing large trackable objects best way………………………………………………………..36 Active removal needed…………………………………………………………………………..37 The US could benefit economically or politically………………………………………………...38

EDDE SOLVENCY:
Been Tested and Needs US Government:
Tests prove EDDE works.. ……………………………………………………………………..40 EDDE technology exists now, only needs funding………………………………………………41 Commercial firms create a competitive environment at a low cost……………………………….42

Cost Effective:
The cost is $84 million per year for 12 years……………………………………………………..43 No other method for space debris is as cost effective……………………………………………44 EDDE has no launch cost……………………………………………………………………….45 Size can be changed to more effectively carry out more missions………………………………..46 EDDE uses propulsion systems which are cheaper………………………………………………47

Quick:
EDDE can remove debris quickly………………………………………………………………..48

Basic Information:
EDDE uses solar energy and the Earth’s magnetic pull…………………………………………..49 EDDE provides the clensing of space debris and the gathering of solar energy…………………..50

EDDE Uses:
EDDE can be used for many commercial functions………………………………………………51 EDDE solves for reentry and fix broken satellites………………………………………………..52

Recycling Debris:
EDDE can drag debris to space junkyards……………………………………………………….53 EDDE can recycle debris………………………………………………………………………...54

Won’t Create More Debris:
EDDE will not create more debris……………………………………………………………….55

Function if broke:
Even if damaged EDDE would still function……………………………………………………56 Can be fixed at ISS………………………………………………………………………………57 Technology demonstrated by NASA……………………………………………………………..58 Still works if meteroids break it…………………………………………………………………..59

ADVANTAGE ONE: US HEGEMONY EXTENSIONS:
US unilateral action best way to jumpstart other countries……………………………………….61 International cooperation not best way…………………………………………………………..62 Achievements in space are only way to improve influence……………………………………….63 US leadership in space key……………………………………………………………………….64 US key to ridding us of Space debris……………………………………………………………..65 US leadership will help international cooperation………………………………………………...66 US will be affected greatest by space debris………………………………………………………67 Space debris threatens US...
