A trio of satellite breakups — two caused by ASAT missile tests — are responsible for a large percentage of dangerous debris in the ever-more popular real estate of low Earth orbit, creating an especially “bad neighborhood” there, according to space traffic observers at LeoLabs.

A Chinese spacecraft is revealing new capabilities with its “unusual activities” as it recently completed around 270 days in orbit, says President and Managing Director of Leolabs Australia Terry van Haren.
Leolabs, which provides space situational awareness data through its global network of radars for tracking objects in low Earth orbit, said its analysis found evidence of what appeared to be at least two and possibly three capture/docking operations with a co-orbiting object.
The spacecraft caught and released an unidentified object several times during its flight, performing a series of maneuvers that were captured by orbital radars, according to California-based LeoLabs.
