Have you ever worried debris a falling rocket hitting you the head? That scenario has never been high the list of life's worries. The chances a piece space junk hitting us were almost zero. However, that is changing. Scientists say there is a growing likelihood that rocket parts falling back Earth could hit and kill someone the next ten years. This is because more countries are sending more rockets space. Scientists say space is becoming congested. They are calling nations and companies that send rockets into space to be more responsible. They want them to control the reentry any rocket parts floating in the lower atmosphere.

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