The Orbital Debris or...

... the biggest earth's trash, but it is so beautiful !
Approximately 95% of the objects in these illustrations are orbital debris, not functional
satellites. The dots represent the current location of each item. The orbital debris dots
are scaled according to the image size of the graphic to optimize their visibility and are
not scaled to Earth. These images provide a good visualization of where the greatest
orbital debris populations exist.

1 - LEO images - LEO stands for low Earth orbit and is the region of space within 2,000 km of the Earth's surface.
It is the most concentrated area for orbital debris.

2 - GEO polar images - generated from a vantage point above the north pole, showing the concentrations of objects
in LEO and in the geosynchronous region.

Have a look at some recovered objects from the space and from now on protect your skull !
