The United States has recently announced a ban on missile tests against space satellites.
Indeed, the tests were judged reckless as they have been generating space debris, which could be dangerous and cause serious damage. By stopping these missile testing, satellites in low-Earth orbit will be better protected.
Vice-President Harris wants to implement safe use of space by addressing the issue of destructive missile tests in space. According to her, these tests jeopardize the long-term sustainability of outer space and endanger the exploration of space.
