I'm ashamed to admit as an aeroeng PhD student, I have no idea how the ISS handles space debris. Does the vessel just tank smaller hits, or is there a way to avoid collision? What happens when there are larger objects that the station would simply not recover from?
Also, thank you for taking time to answer these questions! I know you're all pretty busy, so it's awesome to hear from you all!

Huh, that makes sense. I dunno why I thought there would be some crazy over the top solution. Thank you Courtenay!
