Abstract: The launch of Sputnik in 1957, humanity’s first satellite, ushered in a new era in the conquest of outer space; but it also marked the beginning of a new type of pollution invisible to our eyes, space pollution. Since then, our planet has surrounded itself with numerous satellites tasked with studying our climate, predicting disasters, helping us answer scientific questions important to human evolution, and keeping us continuously connected and monitored. The useful life of these satellites is threatened by the saturation of objects orbiting the Earth. Accidental collisions between objects orbiting outer space can produce debris clouds that move at high speeds; the greater the planetary connectivity, the more increase in space pollution.
