While space travel and exploration has progressed in recent decades, the technology used to launch these rockets and satellites into space is still poorly known to most people. After a group of Canadians voiced anger over a Russian spacecraft that would have ruined Canadian waters, a global ocean group is being formed in order to Study the possibility of space debris falling into the ocean.
The group in training is a global agency managed by the International Maritime Organization. This group decided to launch its study on toxic fallout after hearing the concerns of Canadians.
An Inuit group was among the first to express their concerns about this. toxic space debris falling in Canadian waters. These Canadians have said that Russian launches have allowed a variety of toxic wastes to ruin the waters in which hunters feed.
In 2017, after hearing these Greenpeace has conducted a study highlighting at least eleven toxic splashes of spacecraft since 2002. However, this research also shows that there could be many other toxic splashes unknown to researchers.

This "toxic splash" that would contaminate the waters after the launch of a spacecraft, it is thought that it is the remaining fuel of the launch, which is often composed of highly toxic hydrazine.
according to CP24, Canadian and European officials have stated that much of this toxic fuel is consumed before touching the Earth. However, research at Russian launch sites indicates that fuel is coming to the water after take-off.

This new global ocean group conduct research on this "toxic splash" and study its environmental effects on the world's oceans.
The group asked for information government agencies and international bodies involved in space studies, to enable them to collect clear data on the severity of environmental damage caused by these toxic spills.
This new study is underway A month after Canada announced its participation in an innovative space program that will further explore Mars and humans living on the moon.
