Scientists plan to Remove Space Debris by using Laser

As per reports, there are about 500,000 pieces of debris orbiting the planet, which can run at a speed of about 17,500 miles per hour. Space debris is a major problem for space agencies as it can cause serious damage to active satellites and International Space Station (ISS).
