Debris from burning satellites could be affecting Earth’s magnetic field

The environmental impacts of spaceflight are becoming increasingly clear as more and more spacecraft are launched into Earth’s orbit.

The growing number of satellites burning up in Earth’s atmosphere has concerned scientists for years, and now a new paper explores how the emerging shell of “conductive dust” around the planet that results from satellite re-entries may affect Earth’s protective magnetic field.
