Space debris is a global mounting ultimatum to the enduring maintainability of outer
space activities. It ought to be managed from the very beginning. For the last couple of
years, collisions have enhanced space debris accumulation, and the rate at which space
activities have resulted in the production of debris is at a threshold position in a linear
fashion. Ultimately, space has become the rendezvous of space debris. Considering
the growing accumulation of debris and the emerging apprehension regarding a
horrible strike and collapse of whole space programs, this paper focuses on the legal
and administrative challenges. Both developing and developed countries realize the
research, examination, and development of outer space. Thus, this research suggests
an autonomous, competent international space authority be established by a treaty or
international agreement following the model of the deep seabed authority because it has
similar natural resources but a geographically different location.
