Space is getting crowded. The amount of man-made debris orbiting Earth (non-functional spacecraft, abandoned launch vehicles, mission debris, etc.) grows every year, disrupting our satellites and putting astronauts in harm’s way. If current trends in space
junk continue, low-earth orbit could become unusable for future satellites and missions. To combat this problem, I have introduced the “Space Debris Removal Act” and invite you to join me as a co-sponsor.
