The formation of space debris as an accumulation of small heavenly bodies in near-Earth space is considered. How debris can arise in nearEarth space is described. The accumulation of debris is shown to have a ring structure. The formation and spatial distribution of debris are statistically analyzed. A hypothesis for the formation of debris rings in near-Earth space is proposed.
