Light performance highlights the issue of space waste

While it has been engrained into the public that littering is unacceptable, little is ever discussed about space waste. A new project by Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde is aiming to change that. The Space Waste Lab performance visualizes space waste with a light performance representing its widespread impact. There are more than 29,000 objects larger than 10 centimetres floating around the earth. For example, parts of broken rockets and satellites are currently causing huge problems. This waste can damage active satellites, with collisions creating more space waste and disturbing digital communications. There is currently 8.1 million kilos of waste floating in space.
