orbital-debris-geosynchronous -map-nasaI 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.
