SPACELIGHT POLLUTION

Hello butterfly effect.My aim today is to look at space light pollution on the ozone layer Because technology  have affected many things like the ozone layer through rockets and others.Today nobody knows the extent to which rocket-launchs  are re entering .The climate impact of rockets has not really been seriously addressed .Rockets accumulates in the upper stratosphere where particles absorb sunlight  . ozone loss is caused by accumulation of heat through the upper stratosphere.

Hey Mary! 

This was very cool to read because I didn't know a lot about how the ozone is being affected from rocket launches, and other similar events. It was also very interesting to read about the microphysics of alumina, since this is something very new to me. Perhaps in your next round, you could discuss how our ozone will look like in a decade, or even a century, while spaceflight pollution is still happening at a constant rate.

Here's some sources that could possibly help you discover more about this!

Great job and good luck!
