What's stopping a terrirost from launching a weather balloon with a bomb on it to purposely trigger kessler syndrome and doom our planet for all eternity?

Same reason we don't have super bad bioterrorism yet.

Most terrorists are brainlets or don't actually want to kill everyone.

How do you expect a weather balloon to reach LEO?
>>
>>12746461
Probably the fact any weather balloon won't enter orbit.

>Launch a rocket instead
You would need the debris to go EVERYWHERE which is pretty much impossible given the payload size

>Launch a fuck ton of rockets
The government would stop them, or at least public outcry would.

>For some reason they actually do
The pure size they need to cover would involve a huge knowledge of orbital mechanics, something I doubt a terrorist would know.

>They do and are funded by some evil country
Almost impossible given the huge size of space surrounding the earth.

when did public outcry ever stop a terrorist
