pieces of human-made objects are currently being tracked as they orbit the Earth, but that number only includes objects larger than a softball.

While this represents great progress for the space economy and human space exploration, it also brings significant risks and challenges.
THE IMPACT ON US
Our lives depend on what's in space. Even the tiniest speck of debris, orbiting at 17,000 miles per hour, can damage satellites and disrupt the space services that have become essential to our daily lives.
The world uses satellite services for communications and positioning every day. Everything from "Find My iPhone" to disaster response efforts to live event broadcasts rely on this infrastructure.
Climate & Weather
We need space to help with environmental challenges on the ground. Satellites collect valuable data on humanity's impact on land, air, and sea, along with providing tomorrow's weather forecast.
Our financial system doesn't work without the ultra-precise timekeeping of GPS satellites. Without them, the stock market, ATMs, and point-of-sale systems grind to a halt.
