India, which has recently released a record number of 104 satellites at a time, and continue to do “saturate” the orbits, an American space expert told lawmakers, but said it was for is not a cause for concern. “You do not have to worry about congestion.
We must bear in mind do not understand that these things happen, how they behave so we can help businesses and trade flourish, “said Moriba Jah, Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin School of engineering.
The United States, currently, following 23,000 objects in space. However, with 23,000, followed by current and other objects detected, but not full for various reasons, this poses a huge problem, Jah said. “The other thing is also that we have countries like India.
It just broke the launching record 104 satellites in a single minute a few months ago. They will continue to do and simply saturate the orbits with many satellites, which is not a bad thing, “said Jah.
Before, when space began with Sputnik, there were only a few objects in orbit, has testified before the Subcommittee on Trade, Science and Transportation Agency.
So it was not very difficult to know where things were or where things could be. Tim Ellis, co-founder and general director of relativity, said there is currently a lack of ideals on US sites. For small class launch vehicles to meet polar orbits, retracts and synchronous solar.
“Therefore, many small satellite customers are looking for foreign launches from India, Russia and Europe. The use of an offshore drone launch platform operated under an FAA license could potentially alleviate this problem by allowing That launches in international waters, “said Ellis.
“The concept that we have considered more like the opposite of ships and barges with unmanned jets SpaceX and Blue Origin began to land stages of stimulation valued in relation to the launching of the sea platform. Open-air launch of the West Coast, similar to C-39 Kennedy could be another alternative, “said Ellis.
Senator Ted Cruz said the United States should continue to challenge NASA and the local business community to find new ways to partner to advance their national space policy goals because Congress is never going to fully fund all the priorities of the space community .
“And in anticipation of an expansion of commercial space activity, we also have to consider orbital debris and how it affects the management of exploration traffic and space,” he said.
“There are people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the very nature of space exploration, and if they move on, they could simply,” he added.
