If you download the Freefall demo you get a vivid sense of just how many satellites we have soaring over us. It’s like a swarm of gnats. Freefall is a screensaver that draws on UN and NASA data for over 850 actual satellites – Global Positioning Systems, GOES, NOAA and other unclassified orbiters used by amateur radio stations, weather services, search and rescue teams. One can view these from a number of different perspective, including from particular cities and points of latitude and longitude.
