This visualisation, created by Dr Stuart Grey, lecturer at University College London and part of the Space Geodesy and Navigation Laboratory, made for the Royal Institution’s “A Place Called Space” advent calendar, shows how the amount of space debris increased from 1957 to 2015, using data on the precise location of each piece of junk ( from https://www.space-track.org ).
...how can I ever comprehend all this ... ?
sometimes i just ...
s t o p
... at all this
( and the heaven too )
w h a t is going on in here ? ? ?
- and all the king's horses and all the king's men could not make it whole again -
who gave the right to interfere to " them others " to begin with ?
was I ever beforehand asked of my opinion about this ?
i am part of this system of nature by being born here
part of this man-ipulated structure without options to move to another better galaxy
part of this expected to accept all this
... but then again ...
[ if a true follower of The Universe ]
should I even interfere if I had the means ?
a l l o w
... and still I know
[ i k n o w ]
that the overall Earth-saving solution is in my hands
but for goodness sake -
I am just one little artist !
