Urgent Need To Remove Space Debris

Standard

“There is now so much debris in orbit that the space environment is close to a cascade of collisions that would make space extremely hazardous, a major international meeting has concluded. Its summary position stated there was an “urgent need” to start pulling redundant objects out of the sky. Scientists estimate there are nearly 30,000 items circling the Earth larger than 10cm in size. Some are whole satellites and rocket bodies, but many are just fragments.”

Leave it to us to not only do this to the planet, but to the space around it as well. Are we creating a “ghetto” or “white trash” part of space? Perhaps we’re being avoided. :p

About D.Dinius

I am big on education, animals, and nature. So following that sentence I think it's important to be smart and animals and nature bring clarity and a calmness to things. I am new to actually paying attention and having opinions. This has been building well for about the last year. :)
