The Kiwi Space Radar is located in the Central Otago region of the south island of New Zealand.

A new radar system will track 250,000 tiny pieces of space junk. It may help prevent snowballing collisions that could cut off our access to orbit.

Tracking tiny bits of debris in space could help us avoid a potential disaster known as a Kessler event.

Satellite collisions may set off a space-junk disaster that could end human access to space. Here’s how.

Experts worry that debris orbiting Earth could lead to a "Kessler syndrome" domino effect that cuts off human access to space for hundreds of years.
