There are various methods in which the space debris issue can be handled. Methods like attaching rocket motors in the debris, using of electrodynamic tether or by radiation pressure or providing better shielding/ manoeuvring and automatic de orbiting systems in the future space missions can solve the problem. The implementation of these techniques will give a bright future. Satellite communication would develop faster as there will be no obstacles. Every corner of earth, even the poles could be linked via satellites. Communication will be fast and cheap. Exploring the outer space would be easier and inter planetary communication will flourish. This problem is neglected by peoples because it look insignificant but it is of great concern for the developments in space and technology. A portion of the International Space Station should be allocated for space debris removal and control called as Debris removal system. This monitors the mass, size, and motion of the debris and removes them with an appropriate method suitable for that particular debris.
