The world is competing to establish a king in space, but after the earth in this race, garbage has started accumulating in space too. Scientists at the US University of Colorado have suggested through a study that the implementation of the satellite 'orbital use fee' rule can reduce the growing waste in space.
Economist Matthew Berghies of the US Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) has said that by taking an amount of Rs 76 million per satellite, the world of the satellite will change completely by 2040. In the research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists say that the direct effect of this will be that there will be fewer cases of satellite colliding and less waste in space.
Trash will increase in space in the future
According to experts, thousands of satellites, rockets, and other items have been released since the space age began in the 1950s. According to an estimate, about two thousand satellites are orbiting the earth's lower orbit, while three thousand satellites are defective. 34 thousand pieces larger than ten centimeters are in space.
Twenty thousand big objects in the Earth's lower orbit
According to the American Space Surveillance Network, about twenty thousand large objects have gathered in the Earth's lower orbit. In addition to the launching vehicle with a bad satellite, more than 100 million small particles are present in space. Many spacecraft have also collapsed due to hitting these waste.
Recovery of fees against the 1967 treaty
Professor of Space Kananu of the University of Britain, Northumbria University. Christopher Newman says that such a plan would be difficult to implement. The Outer Space Treaty was signed in 1967, which rules the free use of space. In such a case, such a step would be against the treaty.
