Only a few decades from now, the problem of space debris may render space travel impossible and change everyday life on earth fundamentally. In order to prevent this from happening, scientists from ESA have been working on ways to get the situation under control. The film highlights the importance of space infrastructure for humanity, for everyday life. Navigation systems, weather forecasts, climate research, TV broadcasts, telephone calls – they all need satellites. The film documents various approaches of tackling space debris and shows the viewer that just as on Earth, actions in Space have far-reaching consequences for humans and the environment.
