Have you ever worried about a rocket hitting you? This is not one of life's big worries. However, we may have to start worrying. Scientists say that in the next ten years, a piece of space junk could kill someone. Space is crowded with junk. The scientists want rocket companies to control how space junk comes back to Earth.

The scientists looked at the risk of space junk hitting someone. A record 133 rockets went into space in 2021. Over 60 per cent of them circle the earth for years. They then break up and fall back to Earth. The junk is more likely to hit someone in the Global South. The scientists say companies are putting poorer nations at risk.
