The sky above our heads is much busier than you might have realised. From the International Space Station to satellites used for everything from telephones, television, GPS, mapping and photography, flight tracking… it’s pretty crowded up there! But there’s also an awful lot of junk and debris that can cause real problems. Where did this all come from, and what can we do about it?
