NUMBER OF SPACE DEBRIS REACH CRITICAL POINT
We, little and destroyer human beings, are transforming the world where we are living on a scavenger. If we don’t have enough throwing away garbage here, we need space too.

A waste weightless, floating in space and encasing our beloved planet. This is the ecological disaster of decades of space exploration. In a report released this week, U.S. scientists are sounding the alarm: “the number of debris floating in space has reached a critical point", which threatens more and more on satellites and astronauts.

"Space is becoming more dangerous for spacecraft and astronauts," says this report Donald Kessler, former head of NASA and the president of a commission to study the issue of orbital debris. "NASA needs to find the best way to tackle all the problems caused by meteoroids and orbital debris that carry risks on men and the missions of space robots," he said.

NASA has recorded 22 000 debris and estimated millions of those numbers too small to be recorded. Among the debris, at least 500 000 were between 1 and 10 cm in diameter, and can cause damage. Computer projections show that the number has reached a "critical point" which they will collide and create new debris, further increasing the risk of damaging the spacecraft, according to the National Research Council, an organization independent research which oversees the committee.

The worst is that all these debris creates a new and surrounding area of garbage, and as results in the future we will be more similar to flies than to what we seem to be now.
