Millions of dollars are spent in the construction of a communication satellite, but the cost of building multiple satellites is less.
In order to provide wireless internet, companies like Google, Space X are planning to set up thousands of satellites in Earth’s orbit next year. According to researchers at the University of Southampton, this may increase the possibility of satellites colliding with each other; the already existing dust in the Earth’s orbit will increase.

250 Collision and explosion takes place between satellites and these pieces annually
There are 1,300 Active satellites in the orbit of the Earth
And, 7.5 million One-cm-long pieces of satellites and rockets in orbit
Cost money trouble
Millions of dollars are spent in the construction of a communication satellite, but simultaneously the cost of building multiple satellites is reduced. That is why companies are planning to launch thousands of satellites next year.
Hazard from Waste
As the fuel remains in the pieces, there are more chance of explosion on the collision. The danger of the lives of astronauts by hitting the space shuttle, the danger of billions of dollars in losses on the collision of communications satellites.
Two incidents that had occurred previously
– In 2007, China destroyed the Fengyun satellite from the missile.
– In 2009, there was a collision between the Iridium telecom satellite and the Russian Cosmos 2251 military satellite in the orbit of the Earth.
