Space Junk: An Infographic

I like this picture –  it gives good insight into just how much garbage is up there floating around in low Earth orbit.

Space Junk has become a serious problem, and in the last few years has started to collide with satellites, creating more debris.

Luckily, by 2018, Switzerland, with the help of Canada, will be launching a Space Junk Cleaner called CleanSpaceOne.

Good on you Switzerland!
