“Kessler syndrome” in our satellite structure is becoming prominent
Kessler Syndrome was proposed by the NASA scientist Donald Kessler decades ago that if we continued to blanket the space around the earth with satellites, we could eventually end up with collisions that could lead to satellites crashing more and more frequently until we lost all GPS. We are already starting to see the effects of this, although it’s not close to extremely dangerous level yet.
