Space Debris Collision Risk Assessment on HPC System
Satellites have become an important role in man’s daily life since the first satellite launched in 1957. Their by- products - space debris, resulting from spent rocket stages and defunct satellites to explosion and collision fragments increase greatly in recent years, whose amount have reached 16,000 now according to data published by US NORAD. The space debris can be tracked and cataloged by space surveillance facilities, such as radars or telescopes.
