The Kessler syndrome

Of all the man-made satellites in Low Earth Orbit, 95% are space junk: rocket thrusters, derelict satellites, and most of all, tiny fragments of debris from collisions and explosions. All this debris poses a potential threat to the future of space travel if we don't...

How do debris spread in different operational altitudes

Orbital debris are unevenIy distributed in space; the amount of debris varies significantly with altitude. Maximum debris concentrations can be found in low-Earth orbit at altitudes of 600 km to 1600 km. Of the 1,540 live satellites in space, 1,300 active satellites...

Debris generated by collision spreadover multiple orbital planes over time

Satellites and debris orbit around the Earth at a rate of 7 km/second (28,500 km/hour). At these speeds a single collision has potentially disastrous effects. A single satellite or debris collision can convert 1 derelict or failed satellite into 1000+ fragments of...
