The Earth's orbit is increasingly causing alarm among ballistics.

From the collision of old unguided satellites, the amount of debris in space is growing exponentially, 80% of space debris is located at an altitude of up to 3000 km.

This is a threat not only to operating satellites, but also to the ISS crew.

Scientists talk about the need to create a special orbit, a kind of graveyard for satellites, because if you don't fight space debris, it will be impossible to go into space in 40 years.
