SunstarTV Bureau: If you think earth is the only place where garbage is a problem, but space is also facing the same as well.
A recent report suggested that, the International Space Station (ISS) threw about 2.9 tons into space, following the order of NASA. Due to this, the garbage in the space has increased and simultaneously locked in the same size as the SUV.
The garbage includes batteries used in space which will rotate in the orbit of Earth for many years. However, the accumulation showed the junk is more than the waste thrown in 2007.
Meanwhile, the NASA official updated that the waste is expected to fall on earth after 2 to 3 years. On this, the NASA spokesman said that there is no reason to panic; it will end by burning before it enters the atmosphere while falling on the earth.
What Is Space Waste?
According to NASA, space waste is also called space debris or orbital debris, which consists of old pieces and bad pieces of spacecraft, satellites, rockets, batteries and other technology, which humans have spread and rotate in the earth’s orbit.
How Much Waste Is There In Space?
The garbage in space is moving around in millions and billions in numbers. According to NASA, about 6 thousand tons of garbage is in space with most of it moving at a speed of 18,000 miles per hour. This garbage is moving in the earth’s orbit. Many rules have been made for not spreading garbage on earth, but there is no such rule in space.
According to NASA, there are no rules and rules for this, nor is there such a thing that garbage in the number of crores can be cleared from the Earth’s orbit.
