Spacecraft Cemetery

Space age began on October 4, 1957, with the launch of the first Russian satellite Sputnik 1. Since then, countries have been exploring space by sending large numbers of rockets carrying satellites into space.

These satellites have a specific lifetime and they are linked to their mission, however, after the end of its lifetime, the satellites are disposed in several ways, most notably by returning to Earth and falling into the Spacecraft Cemetery, in the Pacific Ocean.
