Slinging space junk

Space just above earth is crowded with junk. How cool would it be to have a spacecraft that could fling that junk back down to Earth and do it in a cost-effective and fuel efficient manner?

It would be way cool, that's what. And the Aggies are proposing just that as a way to declutter Earth's orbits. And they are calling it TAMU Sweeper with Sling-Sat.
