Mining operations in space are in the Sun's orbit. Not the Earth's

Thank you for pointing out the obvious. Consider fora moment how any ship can get from the surface of the earth to the mining location and how the mining material will get back to the earth. My point holds true

Kessler Syndrome has no real bearing on stuff traveling through a orbit.

It's about a cascading series of crashes in an orbit that create a dangerous debris field. This cascade can take decades or centuries. It also doesn't make the orbit unusable, just a bit more dangerous.

Wall-E and Gravity are not real depictions of what it could be like.
