Wow, Our Planet Has A Lot of Satellites, Here’s 13,000


Here’s a visualization of the 13,000 satellites in orbit around the Earth. Intellectually, I know that these still represent an infinitesimal drop in the overall volume of their orbits, but it surelooks crowded when you see it like this. The Google Earth blog also has a realtime feed of their current positions.
