What is space junk? How much space junk is there? Why is it a problem? Since the beginning of the space age in 1957, tonnes of rockets, spacecraft and instruments have been launched to space. However, the explosions and collisions in space have created hundreds of thousands of shards of dangerous debris.

Orbiting our planet are thousands of dead satellites, along with bits of debris from all the rockets we've launched over the years. This could pose an issue one day. So, it's time for us to face up to the problem of space debris!
