In fact, satellite launches are responsible for approximately 12 percent of the current space debris in Earth’s orbit (International Academy of Astronautics 2005). During the launch process, satellites eject debris of varying sizes into space. Some of the debris stays in space much longer than others. For example, the upper stage of the

    reconnaissance imagery. The first photographic reconnaissance satellite program was the codenamed Discovery. These first satellites could see objects as small as 35-40 feet and once they ejected their film capsule, the satellites were forced to reenter and burn up in the atmosphere. The latest declassified satellite is from the late 1970s and can focus on objects as small as 5.5 inches. Instead of using a film canister, the KH-11 series of satellites uses a digital sensor and communications satellites. Because
