    It has been said that there is 500,000 pieces of space junk orbiting our planet, there are more than 2,000 live satellites in space and more than 3,000 defunct ones!

    At what point will we humans realise that our way of life is killing the planet and all of its inhabitants?

    I thought it would be a lot more than that to be fair but humans are selfish creatures and we don’t think about the world outside our own front door!

    By 2025 Elon Musk plans to put 12,000 of his star-link satellites in orbit around the world, each adding to the litter that surrounds the planet! One has to wonder what health affect this will have on us here on earth

    Did you know that all space debris 4 inches and bigger is catalogued by the USA and tracked!

    Really! Someone gets paid to track litter?

    I find it hard to mentally understand how we are allowed to litter the planet and then expand out to our planets atmosphere.

    It seems wrong, but we all totally rely on the technology this debris gives us.

    So there are 3000 defunct satellites in space? What are they doing up there, are they going to fall out of the sky? To be fair we cannot learn about space without sending satellites up there so we can’t complain if they are now defunct space debris!
