Space Junk and Debris

Space Junk and Debris


At Rocket Junk Removal Services, we’ve encountered clutter in various locations, demonstrating our extensive experience with the omnipresence of junk. It’s not limited to just terrestrial spaces; even outer space is not immune to the issue. Yes, you heard it right – space junk is a concern. But have you ever wondered about the origins of this space junk? Could it be linked to extraterrestrial beings? Actually, the junk in space comes right from good ol’ Planet Earth. More specifically, it comes from all the machinery and spacecraft we launch into outer space. Have you ever watched a NASA rocket launch? If so, you’ll know that rockets tend to “let go” of components the further up they go, such as empty fuel cells. Of course, those components don’t just disappear. The ones that don’t crash back to Earth right away literally hang around—in outer space!

Eventually, that debris has to be hauled back down. A recent example of this was the remnants of a Chinese rocket crashing into the Indian Ocean in July 2022. While no one wound up hurt, for a while there, people weren’t sure where the junk was going to land. Cross your fingers and hope spacecraft remains never shower down on your house!

According to NASA, there are over 27,000 pieces of space debris being tracked by the Department of Defense. That’s a lot of debris! Most of the concern regarding this junk is the chance that it may interfere with spacecraft missions. You see, this debris can travel approximately as fast as a whopping 15,700 miles per hour. You can imagine that one of these pieces of junk crashing into a spacecraft would be disastrous!
