Title: Stuff in Space
Post by: Palloy on May 10, 2016, 08:08:00 PM
stuffin.space (http://stuffin.space/?intldes=1965-065E) is a real-time GoogleEarth-like view of all the satellites, rocket bodies and debris bigger than 10 cm in orbit.  Amazing. 

Disgusting as well, when you think about the energy that it took to get it all up there, and for what? - GPS to tell you where you are, and TV relays to pipe 100+ channels of crap to you wherever you are.
