What is space waste?
Space waste is a term used to describe man-made debris that no longer serves a useful purpose, most of which is now orbiting the Earth.
This includes derelict satellites, spent rocket stages and other particles brought by the Earth's atmosphere. There is actually more of it than you might think, representing an increasing risk to spacecraft, as more debris is generated and left to orbit.
