Space Junk ... Alien Beings Not Welcome...!
When we see the iconic photograph of our beautiful planet earth, this is not the view we imagine, is it? These pictures are images of space junk that is currently being tracked orbiting earth.
According to Nasa, approximately 95% of the objects in these pictures illustrate orbital debris, not functional satellites.
The dots represent the current location of each item. Can you count them?
These images provide a good visualization of where the greatest orbital debris areas exist.
Even if alien beings from other planets wished to visit us, would they really want to risk flying through the space junk? They would take one look at our planet and head for home.
