Space junk and ring of debris

February 6, 2007

I had to interrupt the JSW (Just Science week) posts because I wanted to show this quite striking graphic of space junk around our planet from the New York Times.


The red ring of debris is from the recent satellite destruction shenanigans by the Chinese….who’s brilliant idea was that?

Click on the above image to see full size and then go here to view the interactive feature at New York Times website.
