Visualizing debris in space, using information and data from NASA as resources. Each line light grey line indicates a probable orbit around the earth, the 3-dimensional orbit is flattened to the page using a map projection. The shape of the projection used is debossed into the image. Each of the one thousand orbital lines shown represents more than 600 pieces of debris orbiting earth; there are wide uncertainties in the estimated quantity of space junk.
