Space debris, also known as space junk, refers to non-functional, human-made objects in space. It can range in size from small paint flecks to old, non-operational satellites. As space debris continues to grow, there is a greater threat to current operational satellites and human space missions. Come up with a plan or design a device to solve the problem of space debris. More information is available in the linked flier.
