Good visualization of #spacedebris over time showing both its creation through events and how fast/slow it gets cleaned out depending on altitude

#OTD 58 years ago NASA released the "Satellite Situation Report" with a whopping 70 total objects in orbit! #SpaceDebris



Here are some of my thoughts on recent #spacedebris modelling results. It's not good news, I'm afraid.


Great set of tweets on the #spacedebris problem and how mega constellations affect it.

Part 2 of my #spacedebris critical thinking challenge is coming up. I'd like to understand how you interpret the outputs from typical space debris models. I'm going to provide you with an output from a study that looked at quite a controversial subject: mega-constellations
