For years.For years.
For years we have had alarmists (just like the global warming pseudo science fanatics) moaning and moaning about leaving satellites in orbit and
having more satellites in orbit because they say if satellites collide with each other then this debris from the collision will form more high spreed
debris which hits more satellites which creates more debris which hits more satellites which creates more debris which creates more high speed more
debris which hits more satellites....and so and on ...you get the idea?
These alarmists say this could form a giant debris cloud making space flight/satellites difficult or impossible and thus stopping us from conquering
other planets and stars and leaving us to sulk and die a horrible miserable death on this crapped out tired old world... I mean would it not be a
great injustice when there are billions of planets waiting for us to take over ,that we should be confined to a stinking single clapped out planet?
Of course it would be great injustice for we would be denied what is rightfully ours.
These alarmists have come out with giant hoovers and other very expensive schemes to remove dead satellites to stop this happening.some of them even
want to stop sending satellites up and want us to crawl back into the caves.They want us to "protect" space.
these people even gave it a name.thats right a name.
A collision they claim leads to a chain reaction effect, known as the Kessler Syndrome, where a cloud of fast-moving debris causes other collisions
with orbiting bodies around the Earth.
Well today i told my uncle who is very smart and very close to me.He thought and i thought and he thought and thought and we thunked together and we
bounced ideas and after consulting a book we saw a flaw in the kessler effect.
we did a thought experiment and we thought we saw a flaw.
Which is going to be revealed to you right now.
yes yes yes debris can damage other objects in orbit..the kessler effect depicts a cluster of debris crossing orbits every hour or orbit and
collecting more debris right right?
But but but if the objects are traveling at different speeds then they cannot be in the same orbit! Right? right ? I mean in an explosion in orbit or
a collision in orbit If the objects are traveling at different speeds they will either gain or loose altitude, putting them in a new orbit.
if the objects are in a low orbit in the first place, any collision caused by the objects orbiting in the opposite direction would slow both objects
down, cause them to fall out of orbit to the earth, and thus clear the orbital zone preventing a further collision.
do you get it?
in an orbit around a planet the distance you are from the planet depends on the speed your moving relative to it.
you you doubt me?
just get an elastic band tie some item to it and pretend its a satellite and twirl it... the faster you twirl it the further the object will be from
your hand and stretching the elastic more more more ....the slower you twirl the closer and closer the object will be to your hand which is a
its called centrifugal force.
do you see now?
in a collision all the debris will travel at SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT SPEEDS AND HENCE HAVE A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT ORBIT.
In summary the laws of physics demand that every collision in orbit would reduce the debris, not increase it claimed by moaning alarmists.
