The presence in space of micrometeoroids and orbital debris, particularly in the lower Earth orbit, presents a continuous hazard to orbiting satellites, spacecraft and the International Space Station. Space debris includes all nonfunctional man-made objects and fragments in Earth orbit. As the amount of debris continues to grow, the probability of collisions that could lead to potential damage will consequently increase. In this book chapter, the feasibility of self-healing of impacted composites in space is discussed.
