**bookmark detail**

Average current risk of collision at GEO is 1 every 135 years

LEO: Probability that any given satellite at 800-900km will be hit by debris larger than 1 cm approaching 3% over 5 to 10 year lifetime (est. NASA) (Failure risk due to debris impact remains a substantially lower

probability than risks of launcher or satellite mechanical failure)
