Orbital Debris Simulator describes the phenomena of ‘space junk’ in the earth’s orbit, showing points of interest between the moon and the earth such as geosynchronous orbit, medium earth orbit, and the International Space Station. Images of space toys—spaceships and action figures from various science fiction ‘universes’ as well as toy replicas of actual spacecraft—are used as stand-ins for the orbital debris itself.
