All of the national space agencies are worried about it and you should be worried about it too. Space junk flies uncontrolled. It can and will be deadly. The finest space ship or satellite could be destroyed by the smallest piece of garbage trapped in Earth's orbit.  K. Leslie Graves. The EU Code of Conduct for Outer Space Activities and the Stimson Center’s Model Code of Conduct have made it part of the international debate. What is space junk and what are some of the considerations? Abstract-: Space debris has become a growing concern in recent years, since collisions at orbital velocities can be highly damaging to functioning satellites and can also result into more space debris. Some spacecraft, like the International Space Station, are now armored to deal with this hazard. This paper is a semi-technical survey of the expanding literature of the subject. The paper explores the different sources and mitigation methods of space debris. We have proposed some methods to deal with this problem of space debris. We have also highlighted the shortcomings of some of the proposed methods found in the literature and we have further proposed some modifications in some of those methods. On this show, these guests discuss their internationally presented work entitled SPACE DEBRIS AND ITS MITIGATION.  Keywords: Space debris mitigation, orbit, nano mesh, nanobots and fuel cell.
