The United States is going to set rules for how much space junk will be allowed. Who gave them this jurisdiction? Dunno.
But the FCC won’t wait for an invitation from The Creator to set some rules. They will vote this month on how to address the “growing risks of orbital debris.” According to The Indian Express, the “new rules would apply to both U.S.-licensed satellites and systems, and non-U.S. satellites seeking U.S. market access.”
Space debris is an increasing problem as off-planet missions often leave behind “defunct satellites, discarded rocket cores, and other debris.”
