Abstract
The world’s largest environmental disaster was felt by no one. When the Chinese military recently demonstrated their anti-satellite missiles, deadly debris was scattered across our heavens further than any other manmade event in history. Our increasingly crowded skies are creating safety hazards that are proliferating without public awareness partially due to our inability to visualize and display the massive, transscalar real estate and activity of aerial technologies. Each industry has become adept at tracking its own assets yet none has succeeded in finding a model that represents the entire evolving techno-system in one visual strategy.
