Caption: Space debris. Computer artwork of space debris orbiting the Earth. Such debris ranges from the remains of failed missions to defunct satellites and even unsecured tools that drifted away from an orbiting spacecraft. Providing it is in a stable orbit, the debris will be a constant hazard to spacecraft and satellites. Even a small object can cause a great deal of damage if it impacts another object at the high speeds of Earth orbits. Each impact spreads more junk into a growing shell of debris surrounding the Earth. The launch of more and more satellites has led to near-Earth space becoming increasingly crowded.
