Space Flights Might Stop in 100 Years Due to Debris

Moscow is hosting the conference Cosmonautics of the 21st Century. It is attended by nearly six hundred professionals in various fields. The participants assume that the development of  space industry in the world might stop after a few centuries. This has to happen unless scientists solve the issue of orbiting garbage in the near-Earth space.

      The matters of establishing a long-term Moon station, advanced data transmission technologies in the context of limited resources, development of nuclear space program, as well as other subjects were discussed at the conference. The imminence of space debris hanging over the humanity is one of the most topical challenges. If the issue is not addressed today, then the development of space industry may merely cease after 100-200 years.

      Acording to the JohnsonSpace Center there were 17.729 thousand man-made objects orbiting around the Earth in July this year. Those include 4.242 thousand operational and burn-out satellites.
