    Though I understand the need to make some money off this:
    
    "Electro Optic Systems' laser technology, with the help of a federal
    government grant, will enable the Mount Stromlo observatory in
    Canberra to track space junk and sell the data it collects to
    satellite owners and companies like NASA."
    
    I wonder if the data will trickle down to the public.
