Russia has announced they are planning on spending $2 billion on a craft to clean up around 600 pieces of the space junk.

Space Daily reported that Russia's NASA equivalent Energia plans to build a pod that will float through orbit for 15 years, collecting the old satellites and then head back to Earth. The pod will be nuclear-powered and should be completed by 2020 and set to be fully-operational by 2023 if it all goes to plan.

The new devices plans to add Wall-E on Facebook as a friend.
