This video featured more than 40,000 space debris that have been put into orbit between 1957 to 2016.
Many of these man-made objects have already perished in the atmosphere. There are currently only over 17,000 trackable objects in orbit and less than 10% of these are active satellites.
This video by Dr Stuart Grey shows the evolution of space debris since the dawn of the space age. Data are object over 10cm in size.
