Warning from Scientists: We Won’t Find Aliens Because of Garbage
Experts say that by the end of this decade, the night sky will be filled with satellites and it will be very difficult to detect alien life.
In recent years, debris found in space has become quite a problem.
Today, there are approximately 2,000 active satellites in space, but nearly 3,000 satellites currently in space are unusable.
In addition, these satellites are accompanied by 15,000 fragments and 150,000 untraceable debris.
Scientists Are Concerned
Experts stated that by the end of this decade, the night sky will be filled with satellites and it will be very difficult to detect alien life.
Astronomers are trying to deal with the bright bands of light created by the satellites drifting in front of the optical field of the telescopes.
Tony Tyson, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of California, says that by 2030, people looking at the sky will see moving satellites and very few stars will be visible.
Scientists are concerned about the increasing amount of debris created by the remains of ancient spacecraft in Earth orbit.
In the coming years, the number of these satellites will increase to achieve wide coverage and provide low-latency telecommunications and monitoring services.
This indicates that there may be more danger in future space missions.
