Bulusu <p>From weather reporting to tracking ecological changes, from live telecast of various events to military intelligence, satellites have become indispensable in today’s world. Consequently, exploration of Air space, Outer space and Celestial bodies has grown exponentially. More and more countries and private companies are embarking on space missions, space tourism and space mining. The lower orbit of the Earth contains about 11,500 tonnes of all space objects. The unbridled space exploration has brought with it the problem of space debris, collisions and re-entry of space objects into the Earth’s atmosphere. These have the potential of endangering life and environment on Earth. Also, future space operations would be jeopardised. There is a need to take pre-emptive steps to mitigate the problem of space debris. It is imperative to regulate space exploration so as to leave a sustainable space environment for the future generation of astronauts and astronomers. The present paper draws the attention to the problem of unbridled space exploration, analyses the efficacy of the various international instruments governing the space exploration and suggests measures to mitigate the problem of space debris.</p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2024 The Impact of Excessive Smartphone Use on Social Health: A Literature Review 2024-05-15T13:51:56-04:00 Shokeen Priyanka Neeraj Ruwali <p>This paper reviews the literature on the impact of excessive smartphone use on social health. With the growing popularity of smartphones, there has been an increasing concern about the impact of excessive smartphone use on social health. This review examines the factors contributing to excessive smartphone use, the impact of excessive smartphone uses on social health, and strategies for managing smartphone use to promote healthy social relationships. The literature review highlights that excessive smartphone use can have negative effects on social health, such as social isolation, decreased face-to-face communication, and increased anxiety and depression. Factors contributing to excessive smartphone use include addiction, fear of missing out, and boredom. However, several strategies can be effective in managing smartphone use, such as setting boundaries, practising mindfulness, and engaging in alternative activities. The paper concludes with implications for future research, including the need for further studies to explore the long-term effects of excessive smartphone use on social health, the effectiveness of different strategies for managing smartphone use, the underlying mechanisms that contribute to excessive smartphone use, and the impact of social media platforms on social health. This review provides valuable insights for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers who are interested in understanding the impact of excessive smartphone use on social health and developing effective strategies for managing smartphone use to promote healthy social relationships.</p> 2024-02-29T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2024
