'Almost hit my son' - Space junk crashes through Florida home

A terrifying incident occurred in Florida when a piece of space debris crashed through a home, narrowly missing a young boy. The incident has once again highlighted the growing concern over the amount of space junk orbiting the Earth. The video footage captured the moment when the object crashed through the roof of the home, creating a loud bang and shattering glass. The homeowner, Travis Larson, recalled the traumatic experience, saying, "I heard a loud crash, and then I saw a hole in the ceiling and debris all over the floor." Fortunately, his son, who was playing in the room, managed to escape unharmed. Experts believe that the object was part of a rocket body or a satellite that reentered the Earth's atmosphere and crashed into the house. It is estimated that there are currently over 170 million pieces of debris orbiting the Earth, posing a significant risk to satellites, spacecraft, and even people on the ground. With the increasing pace of space exploration and satellite launches, the problem of space junk is only expected to worsen in the coming years. The issue of space junk has been a growing concern for the international space community. The accumulation of debris in space is primarily due to the remnants of defunct satellites, spent rocket stages, and fragments from collisions between satellites and other debris. These objects travel at incredibly high speeds, posing a serious threat to operational satellites and even the International Space Station (ISS). One of the major challenges in dealing with space junk is tracking and monitoring its movement
