“Japan to create first wooden satellites that completely burn up on re-entry to eliminate space junk”

Mycology PhD title:
Fungal degradation of wooden satellites in geosynchronous orbit (2030).
@Nullsleep that's some neat work!
unfortunate that wood components won't solve the whole problem: space junk doesn't de-orbit on its own, so it doesn't matter much if it burns clean
H...how would satellites burning upon re-entry have any effect on the amount of space junk in orbit?
