    There are approximately 560 satellites operating in Earth orbit, out of ~8,000 man-made objects in total. In its entire history, the SSN has tracked more than 26,000 space objects orbiting Earth. The majority of these have fallen into unstable orbits and incinerated during reentry. The SSN also keeps track which piece of space junk belongs to which country.

    Seems like the environmental clean-up should be extended into space as well!

    Add one more for Earth’s main, and not to mention largest and only natural satellite, the moon.
