There is a machine in space, in orbit, that can produce 500 watts forever...

is this worth recovering?

can we retrieve it, and use it for another purpose?

According to Wiki, Snap-10-A is a wreck. More an orbital debris hazard than useful.

Its amazing how fast and loose they played with dangerous stuff back then...
