Space junk from satellites, humans and rockets is cluttering the once empty space surrounding our planet.

Entire defunct satellites can travel through space at speeds of up to 17500 miles per hour. NASA have(has) even set up a network to track all the debris floating in the cosmos to avoid freak accidents of it falling to Earth.
