As you probably know, our Earth is polluted. But we need to make sure that we dont pollute space!

Here are my questions with answers :

Can space be polluted?

These include old satellites and spent rocket stages, as well as the fragments from their disintegration and collisions. As of December 2016, five satellite collisions have generated space debris. Space debris is also known as orbital debris, space junk, space waste, space trash, space litter or space garbage.

What are the dangers associated with debris in space?

The problem is, the above space debris items are nothing compared to what's also out there: obsolete spacecraft, chunks of satellites and rockets, momentum flywheels, nuclear reactor cores, and fragments of rockets that have broken up or collided with other objects.4 May 2018
