To establish a worldwide broadband infrastructure SpaceX plans to launch thousands of tiny satellites into space.
SpaceX reports that its satellites are meant to burn in the atmosphere.
The private space company SpaceX has launched its Falcon 9 rocket carrying a record number of satellites on board.
However, as the number of debris in space increases, analysts are increasingly worried about the risk of congestion. Satellites have historically crashed in space, and while those collisions may not pose much of a danger to people on the ground, the crash debris can persist in orbit for years or decades to come.
