Synopsis >

Small rocks and pieces from meteors and asteroids, commonly referred to as space debris, are flying around constantly. On average, these bits travel at around 5 miles per second, meaning that no matter the size of the flying object, the damage can be huge. Recently, the International Space Station Commander unveiled a photo on Twitter depicting the impact from a space rock that had collided with one of the solar panels.
