The Space Fence

Over the next 18 months two contractors will be designing and competing to run the new Space Fence. This so called fence is to log space debris with much more accuracy than at present. This is most important due to the amount of junk that is accumulating above us. Only recently the collision of two satellites, the Iridium LLC and the Cosmos 2251 produced a huge amount of debris and was probably the worst contributor to the problem since the Chinese intentionally destroyed one of its ageing weather satellites back in 2007, leaving over 2500 pieces of debris – Deskarati
