When 15-year-old Amber Yang first heard about space trash it gave her nightmares. How could such an imminent threat to space exploration be left on the back burner?

After seeing videos with astronaut Scott Kelly, she decided to take matters into her own hands. Within a few years she consumed all the media she could on space debris, taught herself to code, and learned the ins and outs of astrophysics.

By 18 she had developed an AI-based space debris tracking program that she claims is one of the most accurate in the world.
