Labonté, Robert C.
Space debris has been a problem since the beginning of the space age, when spacecraft were threatened by particles moving at hypervelocities. However, nature is not entirely at fault as Earth's space program itself has created some of the more dangerous debris. Using statistical analysis methods, a comparison was made between the amount of man-made space debris at a future date if nothing is done about the space debris problem, and the amount of man-made space debris at the same date if mitigation procedures are implemented.
