Space debris – a journey to Earth (3D stereoscopic)


Space debris – a journey to Earth (3D stereoscopic version) takes the audience on a journey from the outer solar system back to our home planet. The objects encountered along the way are manmade. Originally designed to explore the universe, these are now a challenge for modern space flight. An estimated number of 700,000 objects larger than 1 cm and 170 million objects larger than 1mm are expected to reside in Earth orbits.

The video gives a closer look at the different regions used for space flight and explains how mitigation and removal measures could preserve future usage of these orbits.

A 2D version of this video is available at:

Produced for the 7th European Conference on Space Debris, 18-21 April 2017.

  1. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to get this in anaglyph when streaming to my plasma via Roku? All I get is SBS which is worthless to me unless I want to watch cross eyed (I don't).

  2. 10:25 How delightful…a little girl about to take a sniff from what was probably the propellant tank of a crashed 1980s satellite with residual traces of hydrazine. Isn't nature wonderful?

  3. you got it backwards people you film in higher resolution then upload in lower resolution, you dont take a 240p video and upload it as 1080 though that is for sure. this is horrible and 3d and bad, i even have nice glasses to see it and it still looks like crap with red and blue being to bright and to far apart.
