Rings of Earth

Earth is a Planet in entire Solar System that faces the issues of Pollution and Space Debris. “Earth is on course to have its own rings. They'll be made of just Space Junk” said the University of Utah researcher Jake Abbott

Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus are exoplanets who possesses natural rings, Of which rings of Saturn are very remarkable. Though there made up of Ice and Rocks. But this is not same with Earth. Earth will have Rings fully anthropogenic, made of all space debris i.e. Damaged Satellites, Rockets and other Space unused objects.

NASA's Orbital Debris Program Office keeps the detailed information regarding space object that revolves around Earth. According to them, There are more than 23,000 Orbital Debris that are larger than Softballs and Millions of debris with smaller size. Debris with speed of 17,000 mph can be a serious threat to Aeroplane flights.

Utah Researchers are studying to find a way to clean space junk. Jake Abbott said, "Most of the debris are spinning. If we try to collect them with robots it will break the robots hand, Leading in more space debris." Many of the Debris fall back in Earth. Most of them are burnt in the atmosphere itself. Estimated 200 to 400 Junks fall back on Earth.

Space Debris

Commercialization of Space will have a leading impact on Space Debris. Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos has been planning to launch thousands of missions and satellites in upcoming years. According to some researchers, It will surely add more unwanted travelling objects.

Recently, Russian Space Agency has shot down 2.5 Ton Satellite in small bits. This have panicked astronomers of International Space Station..
