The risk of satellite collisions is high as Earth's atmosphere heats up.

The increased heat is causing the atmosphere to expand,  

which means that there is more space for satellites to collide with each other.  

Additionally, the increased heat is causing the atmosphere to become more turbulent,  

which makes it more difficult for satellites to maintain their orbits. 

In 2022, there were 1,800 active satellites in orbit around Earth.  

This number is expected to increase in the coming years, 

as more and more countries and companies launch satellites into space.  

The increased number of satellites will only increase the risk of collisions. 

A collision between two satellites could have a number of consequences. 

It could damage or destroy the satellites involved, which could disrupt the services that they provide.
