    The consideration to keep in mind is called space junk, we got quite some trash up there in orbit of our planet. It's considered not to be a problem due that the size of the object would burn in our atmosphere. But we of Asgardia want to go to space and we require to keep in mind out of the prospect of security, what do we do about the space junk? And is there a possibility that space junk might be dangerous for Earth and its` population?

    As you say yourself, it would burn up on re-entry. I'm not aware of any risk to people on the surface of the Earth.

    The big number of space junk can damage expensive spacecrafts The growing number of space items can lead to the state where he object density is so high that one collision is enough to generate a cascade effect, leading to further collisions.

    Can you post a reference supporting that idea?

    I found out that some space launch companyis going to make so called ``cleaning`` mission that is about to clean Earth`s orbit from space junk.
    The Clearspace-1 satellite, or ‘The Claw’, represents the first step towards a clean space environment by being the first space debris removal dedicated mission.

    Apparently collisional cascading effect even has a name (besides collisional cascading effect) and Wikipedia entry - Kessler Syndrome. Plenty of references and links came up with a web search. This article discusses it - https://earthsky.org/space/time-to-d...is-experts-say

    Whatever you do, leave Apollo moon landing sites alone.

    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    They are not in orbit, though.

    Yeah, in the article I`ve mentioned there are an explanation of ‘Kessler syndrome’ ( that represents a state where the object density is so high that one collision is enough to generate a cascade effect, leading to further collisions )
