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 more satellites currently; It revolves around the Earth and therefore our planet has become extremely dense.

Refurbishment wastes and broken parts made in satellites over time; Millions of space debris are spinning with the Earth, including large and small satellites that have lost their functionality and rocket fragments thrown away. National Aviation and Space Administration (NASA), debris in inner space or Low Earth Orbit; estimated weight almost 6000 ton reported that it may be.

Space trash continues to increase with each passing day

Space garbage it does not only pose a danger to astronauts and launched rockets. It can also reflect sunlight onto the Earth’s surface. A research has already been carried out on Earth, which is still warming; Space garbage and space rockets currently in use The sun revealed that it warmed even more with the reflection.

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 against the increasing pollution around the world, NASA works together with. Many ideas on how to contain these wrecks emerged at the SATCON 1 workshop. Of the Airbus Mission system engineer Xander Hall “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 should be further increased to safely remove the debris,” he said in a statement.
