After having some successful and (primarily) not-so-successful rendezvous in space, the area around my nascent space-base is full of detritus. Ending the missions responsible for littering didn't remove any of the space junk, so now it's just sitting in orbit complicating maneuvers. This stuff generally doesn't have any docking ports or anything like that, so there doesn't seem to be a way to grab on to it with a ship.
I'd like to make like a sheriff and clean up this space-town, but as far as I can tell the best way to do that is to run over every individual piece of debris with a ship which, although fun, is neither practical nor efficient (it tends to make even bigger messes).
Are there any useful in-game components like grappling hooks or nets or magnets that can grab on to arbitrary components which I've missed, or failing that are there any good mods for playing space janitor?
