    1. TITLE: How can we reduce the amount of debris and clashes that occur in outer space?

      Kamala Harris, US vice-president, announced a unilateral ban of anti-satellite weapons in California on 18 April.

      America, along with India, China, and Russia, has successfully 'killed' satellites. One satellite can be destroyed, causing 100.000 pieces of debris to fall on other satellites.

      It's becoming a serious problem, as outer space becomes increasingly crowded with private and military satellites orbiting the earth. SpaceX has been granted permission to launch over 12.000 satellites in the next years.

      With more and larger satellites and debris, it's becoming more likely, according to Kesseler syndrome that more debris will trigger more satellite collisions and, in turn, create more debris.

      The US government is moving to develop 'norms and responsible behaviour' in outer space that will be gradually adopted worldwide.

    1. Elon Mask's SpaceX network with 2000 Starlink satellites cause the following threats"

      1. Satellite collisions According to Space.com 50% close encounters between two satellites in 2021 involved Starlink satellites. Triggered by this risk, China initiated the process with the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs.

      2. Environment damage Such concentration of satellites creates various types of pollutions: light pollution, space junk, chemicals in the atmosphere, etc.

      3. Changing night sky and interfering with astronomy One in 15 sources of lights are satellites. Such 'light pollution' will make much more difficult for astronomers to spot asteroids and do their research.

    1. Private companies are becoming space actors.SpaceX, Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic, and Virgin Galactic are some of the most famous. There are also hundreds of smaller players who prepare or launch small and nano satellites into space.

      The new "space race" creates new problems.

      First, outer space is becoming more crowded and there are more realistic chances of collisions between satellites.

      Second, the existing international rules regarding outer space may not suffice to regulate new realities when states are replaced with private companies.

    2. the areas of satellite launches, satellite manufacturing, propulsion technologies, and space-based services.

      the main areas around space industry.
