    "Every day about 40 tons of space debris hit the atmosphere, burn and
    settle to Earth, NASA has found. The vast majority of the detritus
    consists of meteoroids no larger than a grain of sand"
    
    If this is true, I find it hard to believe that orbiting debris could
    exceed the density of these meteorids.
