Space Travel: Russian satellites in orbit, some Chinese rockets barely escaped a collision

According to a company that uses radar to observe objects in space, parts of a non-functional Russian satellite and a Chinese rocket are very close and continue to collide.

Leo Labs said it could be 25 meters away.

According to Leo Labs, no trace of his body was found in Antarctica. Other experts believe that the Cosmos-2004 and Sheng Yang missiles travel a considerable distance.

The total weight of these two machines is 2.5 tons and travels around the world at a speed of 14.6 kilometres per second.

When two devices collide, debris can fall to the ground, losing life and property.

Since they were at an altitude of 1000 kilometres above sea level, the particles produced by their collisions could stay in space for extended periods of time, endangering other satellites in orbit.

Leo Labs is actually a Silicon Valley start-up that uses radar networks to monitor the orbits of space’s useless and efficient satellites and rockets.

Moreba Jah at the University of Texas at Austin said the distance between the two devices was only 70 meters.

A similar statement was made by Aerospace Corporation, a reputable entity in this regard.

The more satellites launched, the greater the concern about possible collisions in space.

The biggest problem in this regard is the proliferation of outdated hardware in space.

Spaces larger than an inch in size contain an estimated 900,000 large and small objects or parts that can seriously damage or destroy operating spacecraft and rockets.

This week, the European Space Agency investigated the spill of spacecraft and rocket spare parts and released an annual report on the state of the space environment.

These include old spacecraft fuel and batteries, and explosions from rockets in orbit.

According to the agency, there has been an average of 12 such accidents in space over the last two decades, unfortunately, this trend is increasing.

This week, a group of experts from the International Astronaut Conference released a list of the 50 largest musical instruments in space. Many of them are old Russian and Soviet rockets.
