Orbital Debris



Just looking at some interesting images and stats from the CenterForSpace
Web site. The quick stats are 3,100 spacecraft orbiting earth with
two-thirds of those no longer active. Nearly 7000 pieces of man-made debris
large enough to be tracked. And the satellite recently destroyed by China
created more than 900 pieces of large debris.

Take a good look at the various images depicting the debris.
