Orbiting Debris


A booster fragment threatens on the HST

Orbiting Debris (1987) - An orbiting remnant of an exploded Air Force booster bears down on the Hubble Space Telescope. Thousands of potentially hazardous pieces of "space junk", large and small, are being tracked in earth orbit. Even the smallest fragments traveling at orbital velocities can have lethal consequences.
