Or is this picture inclusive of functioning debris (aka satelites)? It would be nice to see a color break up of junk to devices pictoral. Red for junk and blue for functioning devices. It would also be good to see this diagram splayed so we can see the planet not just this side. Is it worse or better on this side of heaven?
Also I wonder how much shrapnel was created with China's demonstration of being able to "shoot down" satelites.
