Big Brothers: Satellites Orbiting Earth
Michael Paukner has created a great infographic, Big Brothers: Satellites Orbiting Earth. Visually showing which countries own all of the space junk currently orbiting Earth (functional, dysfunctional and floating debris). We apparently have Saturn-envy as we attempt to create rings around our planet.
You’ve got to feel bad for countries like Chile, who used to have a single working satellite in orbit, but the warranty ran out and it doesn’t function anymore.
