Abstract

Space is more and more prone to accidents involving obsolete orbital objects. Examples are: July 1996: Cerise satellite lost due to a collision with a former Ariane tank fragment February 2009: Cosmos 2251 and Iridium 33 destroyed by collision, creating 1100 new catalogued debris objects.
