Space debris could "FOLD" people on Earth and jeopardize space missions Science | news

It is now believed that a staggering 170 million scrap pieces are floating in the upper atmosphere, but only 22,000 are being tracked. Around 7,000 tons of space debris are orbiting our planet, while satellites made from rockets and other metals and rocks near the Earth accumulate. Experts have previously warned that as rocket space debris becomes more abundant, it …
