Space Junk, a Metaphor for How the Elites Run the World

Staff Writer, Nathaniel Diaz
Space / Junk 

Ever wonder what is out in space looking back at you?

I wonder how much junk and trash has been discarded there by corporations and governments that I, like the other billions of people on planet Earth, had nothing to do with. 

Even though Stuff in Space is not political, the website gives a glimpse into how the world is run by the elites sitting in board rooms, think tanks, and government offices who do not pick up after themselves but always find a way of blaming me, us.

So have fun counting the endless supply of space junk and other trash left behind by other than the 99% of people on Earth.

Stuff in Space is a realtime 3D map of objects in Earth orbit, visualized using WebGL.

The website updates daily with orbit data from Space-Track.org and uses the excellent satellite.js Javascript library to calculate satellite positions.
