Space debris poses real-life 'Gravity' threat

Recommended Posts

The events of the hit movie could become a reality thanks to the large amounts of junk in Earth's orbit.

In the movie 'Gravity' Sandra Bullock ends up fighting for survival after debris from a satellite kick-starts a chain of devastation high up in orbit around the planet. While many of the sequences in the film are a little far-fetched, the scenario of a spacecraft being put in danger by pieces of space junk is actually very real.

Im interested in what the new research for junk removal will lead to. Keeping our atmosphere clear and clean?

Ohhhh noooo. Brain damage due to cosmic rays will stop deep space missions cold, and soon you won't even be able orbit the planet safely. Deflector shield research needs to become a top priority.

Yes, it certainly makes me worry for the astronauts up there. The solar array of the ISS was struck by an object in 2013. Luckily it hit the solar array and not the hull of the spacecraft. http://astrobob.area...13/04/30/99246/

It isn't just space junk, it's all the junk in the solar system that gets caught in our gravity well. Meteors. micro-meteors, even dust particles the size of a grain of sand can reek havoc if they are travelling a gillion miles an hour.

Personally, I think every nation that puts up a satellite or spacecraft should ultimately be responsible for any problems it causes and it safe and complete removal. The Chinese just demonstrated that it had an anti-satellite missile by destroying one of their own old weather satellites trouble was it's caused the ISS to make several course changes to avoid debris from it.
