In Science and Space: Have you ever looked up at the night sky and seen something running in the dark? It’s not an airplane because it doesn’t blink. Is it a shooting star? Hurry up and make a wish! He could be one of the thousands of space junks orbiting Earth.

The amount of junk out there is proving to be a problem.Those abandoned, non-functioning gears pose a real risk of damaging the satellites we rely on every day.But Now, Scientific American reports that members of Congress are taking action against the growing mountain of space debris.

In total, more than 27,000 pieces of space debris are currently floating around the planet. That’s one piece of junk over 10cm for every Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 sold in the US so far this year.

According to SciAm, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission has outlined plans to remove all of these inoperative satellites from orbit.

The FCC Commissioner plans to approve the proposed rule by the end of September. In this case, the regulation will come into force within the next two years.
