Space debris as a threat to humanity has had a moment of fame. For ninety minutes, it threatened to kill Sandra Bullock in the movie Gravity . But now scientists would like to make use of the public attention created by the movie to warn about the real-life problem of space debris. Experts at a US government discussion, called Space Traffic Management: How to Prevent a Real Life Gravity , claimed that space activities, including both human travel and the operation of satellites, will become increasingly dangerous if new rules are not put in place to control space debris. The most important item during the discussion was a request by the US Federal Aviation Administration for additional control over commercial satellite operators, so as to be able to order action to avoid crashes in space, since no agency currently holds such authority. In the discussion, the use of the space around our planet was described as being completely disorganized, with more than 60 countries, dozens of companies and numerous educational and nonprofit organizations now operating satellites with no global organization to control or coordinate them. Two events in the last decade, not counting Gravity , have made it clear that new controls on space  junk   need to  be put in place. In 2007, China shot one of its own weather satellites in an explosion that created thousands of  pieces of debris. Two years later, a private US satellite crashed into an old Russian satellite, despite predictions that the two would miss each other. The result was the biggest single creation of space debris ever, producing an estimated 2,000 of the 23,000 tracked objects in orbit. Currently, no practical technology has been developed to dispose of the debris.  NASA has had to take action to avoid collisions with debris in order to protect the space shuttle and the International Space Station during the past 10 years. But there is no organization that can order a private company to spend money on the expensive action of changing the position of a satellite. Any decision by an organization to order these companies to take evasive action would also be problematic due to the difficulty of predicting the  probability of collisions between two relatively small objects   800km up in the air. Some solutions have been proposed. It has been suggested that as part of the licensing process for putting satellites in orbit, organizations could agree under which situations they would move their satellites. However, until a complete solution is found, space operators will continue to worry about ‘Gravity’.    Lënda: Gjuhë Angleze Provim me zgjedhje Varianti A AKP   3   18 qershor  2014   1.   What is the writer mainly writing about? 1 point  A)   The effect films have B)   The number of satellites C)   The problems of space debris D)   The expertise of American scientists 2.   a)   What makes the movie ‘ G ravity’   useful for scientists? 1 point  ________________________________________________________________________________________  b)   What did experts warn about space activities? 1 point   ________________________________________________________________________________________ 3.   a)   Why is control over commercial satellite operators so important? 1 point   ________________________________________________________________________________________  b)   What was the result of the Chinese action in 2007? 1 point   ________________________________________________________________________________________ c)   What difficulty do private companies face when changing the position of a satellite? 1 point   ________________________________________________________________________________________ 4.   What does the last word of the text, ‘Gravity’, refer to?   1 point   ________________________________________________________________________________________ 5.   What does ‘junk’ mean in the fifth paragraph?   1 point  A)   Debris B)   Satellites C)   Companies D)   Operators  Lënda: Gjuhë Angleze Provim me zgjedhje Varianti A AKP   4   18 qershor  2014   Task Two  Read the texts below and answer the questions.
