SpaceX is launching the largest constellation of satellites in history. Every time one of those satellites fails, there is a concern that a failed satellite could hit something else in space causing a field of debris. If there is enough debris it can lead to an effect called the Kessler Syndrome – a runaway cascadde of collissions that could fill Low Earch Orbit with debris for years!
