Space near the Earth is now permeated by clouds of debris. These clouds are created by collisions between spacecraft, satellites, and other debris fragments. They damage and destroy communications and scientific satellites, as well as world-wide space exploration and development missions such as the International Space Station. If nothing is done to remove the debris clouds before their growth rate becomes exponential, space will become inaccessible to humans.
