UNITED STATES.- The Canadian Space Agency recently revealed that the “Canadarm2” mobile maintenance system has failed. It was from space debris, which affected the International Space Station aircraft. Fortunately, they revealed that despite the blow, it continues to work in a good way for the relief of the experts. In this sense, it was explained that the said blow was given to the arm of the device and they assured that it is not a surprise that this happened. The terrible thing about this is that the event happened in low earth orbit, which is a garbage dump generated by humanity itself and made up of millions of fragments; Dead satellites, rocket parts, or pieces of broken spacecraft. Likewise, it has been reported that the Space Station’s radars can track around 34,000 objects with a dimension of around 10 centimeters. These float around the orbit and are usually “invisible” so that they can be seen. Despite their “tiny” size, they pose a danger to space devices, as happened with “Canadarm2”.

Unfortunately, the ability to clean up the over 6,000 tonnes of debris we have left in space is impractical. Without a doubt, this is terrible news, especially because it implies that humans are constantly generating waste, now in space. This is not the first time that such a problem has arisen. The crew of the “Crew Dragon” had prepared for an impact on their last mission. At a distance of 45 kilometers, the crew quickly had to put on their pressure suits in the event of such a collision. Even NASA and SpaceX have revealed the video of the event, although it has not been upgraded to a larger one.
