For scientists, the debris could have separated from the spacecraft at the time of landing or it could have been blown away by wind when the persistent rover reached Mars.
Various space agencies show their concern about the human presence in space. With a space mission to Mars, terrestrial waste is released from ships or research teams.
This problem does not only occur on other planets or on the Moon. Various scientists have discovered debris such as satellites, instruments, old and non-working metals in Earth’s orbit. This situation begins to be a problem for launching ships into space or to space stations.
