    Hi all,
    
    Here are three 3D maps showing the current position of the catalogued USA
    193 debris with their orbits. The red portions are in shadow. It's
    interesting to see the dispersion :

    The debris with the highest apogge is D at 1832 km. So we can't say that the
    ISS orbit is not at risk. Here's another map showing the ISS orbit relative
    to the debris orbits :
