This book offers clear recommendations for targeted research on the debris population and the specific risks to spacecraft, effective international exchange of information, requirements for reducing debris from future launches, improved spacecraft protection measures. It explores methods of tracking and cataloging the debris population in orbit, including a look at U.S. and Russian space surveillance systems. It discusses the tools and techniques used to assess the specific risks to spacecraft and to develop protective measures, such as shielding. The book also evaluates approaches to reducing the growth rate in the debris population, including changing disposal practices during space flights, forcing large rocket bodies out of orbit, and other methods.
