Explanation

Until now in space, the situation with all the satellites out there is under control. But soon will become less prone to be so good or benign.

E wins

Why not C "protected"?

See my previous explanation. The word risk is the key to understand and fill the blank.

usage of BUT is correct? That actually giving me a sense of using contradictory word in the blank to the first sentence.

Absolutely. The usage of BUT is perfectly fine as a transition connection.

We do have X, but considering Y, the result will be Z.

Hope this helps.

Ask for further assistance.

Here the meaning of the sentence is that the situation into space does not present a high risk, at the moment. But how we do lunch more and more spacecraft into it , the spacecraft itself are not so secure due to the debris.

So, the overall scenario is that it will not be so safe as for now. Safe = benign

Hope now is more clear to you

I am confused between benign and invulnerable. Do both not mean "harmless"?

It means impossible to harm or damage. Like Superman.

Benign is quite different in its meaning.

Thank you for this explanation as invulnerable also had me in a quandary.
