NASA brings more facts and figures on space junk
I wrote in February about how Mankind polluted space near our beautiful planet. I was then quoting the European Space Agency (ESA) which believed that there are 13,200 trackable objects larger than ten centimeters;
Now comes the NASA estimates that there are no less than 19,000 objects larger than ten centimeters in outer space, and between 500,000 and a million objects between one and ten centimeters.
