Space debris

2013-11-26 - This animation replicates the rate at which space debris is growing. Recent satellite collision events have multiplied the amount of debris in orbit, further increasing the danger of more collisions. Today, it is estimated that more than 22,000 objects larger than 10 cm across are orbiting the Earth. (Credits: Canadian Space Agency, NASA)
