The Growing Threat Of Space Debris
Since the launch of the first artificial satellite in 1957, Earth’s orbit has become increasingly filled with man-made space debris, posing a dangerous, ongoing threat to spacecraft and satellites. ... Today, approximately 20,000 objects are catalogued and routinely monitored.
