Space Debris Over The Past 60 Years

It was only half a century ago when the idea of traveling to space was still science fiction. Now, the launching of a satellite and even sending astronauts to the International Space Station has become dull and mundane.

We’ve left a lot of space trash and debris out there. Stuart Grey made this animation demonstrating the accumulation of space debris over the past 60 years.
