At a lab in New Mexico, A team is assessing this dangerous “space trash” with the use of ultra-high-speed imaging cameras. They fire fake “space trash” no bigger than a pea at things like oxygen tanks and steel cables. Let’s just say it never ends well (everything gets ripped in half), and the scientists can’t even see the projectiles to track them. That’s where Vision Research Phantom cameras, such as the Phantom v711 and Phantom v2512, come in. With the ability to record this astronomical data, these imaging cameras reveal a new level of understanding of the destruction that something like “trash” can cause to a spacecraft or astronaut.
