Did you know that there are 22,000 man made objects orbiting earth ?
this question is under: ""military history --> naval combat"I knew there was a lot of stuff floating around us in orbit, but had no idea there were that many. So, how many are military weapons?
I was limited in my selection and may very well have chosen the wrong category; but the answer to your question is: 5% functioning satellites 8% spent rockets87% fragments and inactive satellites
thanx 4 the break down.I am not surprised at 87%-our 1st space junkyard.As if there is not enough hazardous garbage 2 dispose of on this planet, we now pollute space. Just the beginning i suspect. some politicians want 2 send nuclear waste 2 space
No, and that's really sad. Apparently anyone can have their own satalite.
