There's shit everywhere up there, how they stop particles the size of sand smashing all our stuff?
There is a segment of the militairy or NASA
that keeps track of space debris 24/7
They move stuff ahead of collission.
This will really be a problem in the future.
Only more stuff is getting up there.
Even small screws go 10.000 km/h
There's a lot of empty space in space, especially because it's 3 dimensions
I see starships get blown up in movies and think "that's gonna make some poor assholes life hell back on earth trying to keep track of all those bits", lucky we only have one shitty little space station then. Do we just have one?
....uhhhh a lot more space up there then you think ts.
there's a surprising amount of unoccupied space in space
You don't think it be like it is, but it do.
Yeah, I do struggle to truly understand the concept, like our galaxy being the size of a grain of sand on a beach in size comparatively. I mean I understand the concept, but to truly grasp the implications?
I'm a bit retarded, but it makes me want to see us explore more than the same 5 fucken planets that are useless to us, I often wonder if we've been invaded by aliens but they fucked up some calculations like in the guide to the galaxy and their entire fleet was the size of a marble or some shit.
Or if we're like the retarded gimps of the galaxy nobody wants to visit.
Instead our dream is to visit Mars, a fucking dead hot shithole and study some rocks or worm like markings.
I would volunteer for a one way trip in chryo to visit some stuff years away. As long as I got porn and an Xbox to keep busy with.
There's so much crap orbiting Earth that it's already becoming dangerous. NASA has openly talked about the possibility of there being so much crap up there that we're literally trapped on Earth because anything we launch will get shredded.
... oh shit, they're just laying the groundwork for why we can't prove the Earth is round. @Scyther
Good question TS. The fact is satellites that circle a planet don't actually exist. Telecommunications satellites are a hoax. The fact is ground based towers that triangulate our position are used for GPS, GPS systems have existed for quite some time before they were released to the public. Also, thousands of miles of underwater fiber optic cables send 99% of our data (really 100% but the experts say 99% to throw people off.)
So how does NASA track a screw moving at `17,500 MPH +. Where does this team operate that tracks these objects, how many members do they have, what methods do they use to track small debris?
Space poor people. They salvage that shit.
Gotta take it one step at a time. I'm eager to go out and find the aliens too, but we're just not there yet technology-wise.
Getting to Mars is a good first step, but it should've happened already. We landed on the moon in 1969. People from my dad's generation thought that we would've gotten to Mars long ago. Everyone thought that. We should've touched down on the Red Planet no later than . . . I'd say 1989.
Over the years the moon has been hollowed out to become a fully functional death star. It zaps hazardous space debris out of existence.
How NASA steers the International Space Station around space junk
"The ISS' orbit decays due to atmospheric drag at the rate of about two kilometers per year; it must periodically be boosted in order to maintain its height. Moreover, the entire massive structure is mobile—it can be rolled and pitched and yawed, or even moved ("translated," in NASA parlance) in three dimensions to avoid a potential collision with debris."
