How aware is the fish of the water in which it swims? You too should be aware of the ocean that surrounds you. A sea of nitrogen and oxygen molecules, swirling and spilling over each other. Eddies and currents in every movement, a vortex in every breath, and giant waves turning to surf in the sky.
To illustrate our species insanely fast technological development, here is a map of the satellites orbiting the earth. This image only shows a fraction of low-earth orbit satellites, and does not show the satellites farther out in geostationary orbits. If you want to explore this for yourself, you can download the google earth KML file here. Our view it in your browser here. The position of each satellite is tracked in real time and updates every 30 seconds.
