Paragraph 2

Scientists in Canada did research on the of rockets launched into space, and the of people being hit by falling debris. There were 133 rocket in 2021. That was a record. It looks like that will be broken this year. The scientists said more than 60 per cent of rockets are abandoned in space after they release their . The abandoned spacecraft can circle the for years before they fall back down. A finding of the research is that rocket parts are more to hit somewhere (or someone) in the Global South. However, most rockets are launched from the Global North. The scientists say and companies are "exporting risk to the of the world".
