A satellite operator is asking the US government to stop blowing up spacecraft

When the US Air Force wants to practice detonating objects, they use sites like the Nevada Test and Training Range, a vast strip of desert where they can drop bombs far from civilians. For example, in November 2021, Russia tested an anti-satellite missile by destroying one of its decommissioned satellites. The blast created thousands of pieces of debris in orbit, forcing astronauts on the International Space Station to seek shelter.
