Caption: Space junk. Computer artwork of the Earth surrounded by points representing the location of space debris known to be in orbit around it. The continents of North and South America (green) are seen at upper centre and lower right respectively. Tens of thousands of man-made objects are in orbit around the Earth, remnants left by the many space missions carried out since the 1950s. These objects present a hazard, both to future space missions and, if they re-enter its atmosphere, to life and property on Earth.
