Striking development about space litter

1957’of Sputnik’in It has been 64 years since it was launched into Earth orbit. However, over time, many satellites were launched and until today 3000 den Too many satellites are orbiting the Earth right now, and our planet has become extremely dense as a result.

Over time, millions of space debris are spinning with the Earth, including remodeling waste made in satellites, broken fragments, large and small satellites that have lost their functionality, and rocket fragments thrown away. National Aviation and Space AdministrationAccording to NASA, the estimated weight of debris in inner space or Low Earth Orbit is almost 6000 ton reported that it may be.

Space trash continues to increase with each passing day

Space junk isn’t just a danger to astronauts and launched rockets. It can also reflect sunlight onto the Earth’s surface. A study has revealed that the Earth, which is already warming, is warming even more with space garbage and space rockets that are already in use.

Astrophysicist Jonathan McDowell pointed out this and warned everyone. According to McDowell, the increase in this space litter will accelerate each year. In the continuation of his explanation: “We go back a few years, when only up to 10,000 man-made objects were launched in orbit, which was the beginning of what is called the space age. Currently, launching rockets commercially is not much expensive than it used to be, numerically at the beginning, $ 24,800. Now it’s down to just $ 1240. He said more than 18,000 satellites will orbit Earth by 2025, which is anticipated by this price series, ten times the total number of man-made satellites available in 2018. While 12000 of these launched satellites belong to the Starlink project, approximately 3500 belong to Amazon’s Kuiper project. “ said.

Many international companies are working with NASA against the increasing pollution around the world. Many ideas on how to contain these wrecks were shared at the SATCON 1 workshop. Xander Hall, systems engineer for Airbus Mission, said in a statement: “Every piece of scrap in space belongs to its original operator and that this space orbital debris is not covered by current international law.” He suggested that international efforts must be made to claim ownership of the space debris so that it can be safely removed.
