Gen. John Raymond says one solution for space debris is to ‘stop creating it in the first place’

Gen. John Raymond, the first chief of space operations of the U.S. Space Force, says Space Force tracks about 30,000 objects in space, and the debris makes up the vast majority of those objects. Raymond says one solution is to stop “creating debris in the first place.” “There are probably about a half a million other objects that are too small for us to track, so clearly the domain is a congested domain…Our view of this is the way you solve this debris problem is to help stop from creating debris in the first place.”
