I don't disagree with any of the criticisms of the infographic here, but who is really going to remember the details of this thing in a week? I basically take away what I already assumed. There are a lot of satellites, and most of them American or Russian.

*Big brother* is often used as a metonymy for government, so cool yer jets, cadets! Anyway, I thought it was interesting to see the ratios of junk to functional equipment.

Maximum Crap and total incomplete...f.e Hellas Sat 2 is missing (Greece's Satellite) and possibly others(?) ...and yes what's with the "Big Brother"thing...maybe gizmodo should check more carefully info posted and not only judging by a -somewhat- pretty pic.
