This computer-generated image shows the objects currently being tracked in Earth orbit. 95% of them are defunct satellites, rocket stages and debris created when satellites and rocket stages explode on their own, creating clouds of many smaller pieces. The two main debris fields are the ring of objects in geosynchronous orbit (location of communications, weather satellites) and the cloud of objects in low Earth orbit. Credit: NASA
