A new study by scientists led by scientists from University College London shows that SpaceX and Virgin Galactic ushered in a new era of climate change.
Researchers have found that soot particles emitted by rockets hold heat in the atmosphere nearly 500 times more than any other source of soot combined. And this greatly accelerates global warming.
Scientists made these conclusions by examining data on rocket launches in 2019, as well as based on predicted space tourism scenarios.
Experts have calculated that if a rocket with space tourists is launched every week or even every day, this will soon affect the density of the protective ozone layer. In their opinion, the ozone layer will become thinner due to the use of kerosene and hybrid synthetic rubber fuel.
