Could be a problem short term but when you consider that we're in a race to get back to the moon again I don't see this as being a long term issue. With tech advancing so rapidly the next logical step would be to build an observatory on the moon which wouldn't have to deal with any of the earth's light pollution. Also I could see a bunch of new hubble-like telescopes being launched into space as well.

If the Chinese get up there they're going to be mining Helium 3. One of the important purposes of said journey is to get to the moon so we can get to mars so we can get to Jupiters moons. That would be game over but how much resources does 1 need and at what cost? Its already a good idea to diversity the species and survive the sun

this is a lot of more space junk, they need to do this but also somehow clean up some space debris.
Space Debris and Human Spacecraft. More than 500,000 pieces of debris, or “space junk,” are tracked as they orbit the Earth. They all travel at speeds up to 17,500 mph, fast enough for a relatively small piece of orbital debris to damage a satellite or a spacecraft.Sep 26, 2013
