How to track them

There is a satellite catalog that orbits the earth detecting space debris. NASA and DoD share the responsibilities for characterizing the satellite. It needs to be bigger than four inches to detect it. There are over 15,000 officially cataloged objects still in orbit.

How to clean it up

When people go up to space they can pick some stuff up. They can make a special space junk remover. They can also make a space based laser system when any space debris floats by it the space debris can get fired at.
