In 1958, the United States launched the first solar-powered satellite, Vanguard 1, into orbit. Over 2,200 days later, it's still in orbit — just one of millions of pieces of debris orbiting the Earth. As space around the planet becomes more crowded with the leftovers of human spaceflight, it poses a grave danger to the future of space exploration.
