    that was lost in space the other day in the spacewalk.

    So fiscally speaking, let's begin with the cost of the lost toolbag, $100K...

    now, add the cost of resources to track it on satellite.

    Wouldn't surprise me if they spent another $100M to go get it.

    there is loads of junk lost in space - we are a very rubbishy race ;)
    Just consider all the fuel tanks and other components that are dropped from launch back to earth - and all the bits of spaceships we leave behind.
    a £100K toolbag is probably a drop in the ocean - er space

    I just remember they lost a Hassleblad on one of the early space walks back in the 60's ... I kept hoping it would land in my yard.
