Why Space Waste Is Bad And How To Stop It

Space Featured Image 8

When we send ships into space we realese tons of junk there and our atmosphere. When rubbish crowds around our atmosphere, heat gets trapped in which can trigger global warming.

To minimise the amount of junk in the atmosphere we could reduse the amount of debrea we realese with each of our spaceships. For example, if we put more fuel and a targeting system in thrusters we could bring them back to Earth and recycle them. We should not be spending billions just to kill our planet insteed we should focus on stopping global warming, this includes space junk.

    i think that we should stop leaving space junk on space because there is a high chance that we could crash into our space junk that we have left

    I agree because I think it's vital for us to sort this problem before we try to find life on Mars and attempt to live on the planet as it could be fatal for the Earth. Imagine how much space junk would be created if we used our current transport to Mars as often as we do planes, the Earth would suffer devastatingly.

    I think SpaceX is doing a great job in making reusable rockets possible. However, there is a bad side to reusable rockets as the price in launching a rocket will become much cheaper, therefore encouraging more rockets to be launched leading to more carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere. There is really no way to avoid damaging our environment while space travel occurs.

    I agree that we need to make a change about the waste we spread in space because otherwise we will not be able to discover more mysterious planets in the solar system. If we keep going up to space then the petroleum coming out of the rocket could effect space so what we need to do is send lots of people up at the same time to reduce the amount of petroleum spreading around. After all space is still a part of our universe and we need to look after it well. Your post inspired me to reduce waste. Thankyou
