Satellites in space: the short history

a quick history of satellites in space from ne0nle0n on Vimeo.

What a nice way to start the year: counting the satellites that have been launched and have died since the beginning of space era. Between 1957 and 2011 6910 satellites have been launched and only 3494 still orbiting Earth. It seems that a bit part of those are just space junk and only 500 or so satellites are still active.
