U.S. Update Rules Around Space Junk

The U.S. has announced its plans to revise rules around space junk as thousands of pieces of potentially dangerous debris circle the Earth. Dr. Darren McKnight, the senior technical fellow at LeoLabs, joined Cheddar News to discuss. "Really, we've had decades-long where it's been typical to say if you operate a satellite even for just six months, you need to remove it 25 years after the mission lifetime," he said. "So well that's really bad. If you had a car break down the highway, you wouldn't leave it there for six months. You clean it up right away."
