Astroscale Statement on Russian Federation ASAT Test

Posted November 16th, 2021 Posted in News

The intentional and unnecessary destruction of any object in space is irresponsible. This ASAT test threatens the incredible progress we are making as a global community, endangering humans in orbit and the long-term stability of the space environment. Our orbital highways are already congested, and every further piece of debris created increases the risks and costs of operating in space.

Astroscale will continue to speak out when these acts occur. The global community must work together to realize the vision of a safe and sustainable space environment for the benefit of future generations.​
