This paper main provides some mathematical methods to calculate the distribution of the space debris and the damage they brought each year. Through the statistical data recorded by NASA, we can get the flux and the amounts through Kessler model. When combined with NASA's Break up model, the debris' classification and the average loss of debris which can destroy the satellites in different orbits can be derived.
