How many satellites are in space right now?
Space is Open for Business. Right now, there are nearly 6,000 satellites circling our tiny planet. About 60% of those are defunct satellites-space junk-and roughly 40% are operational. As highlighted in the chart above, The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), determined that 2,666 operational satellites circled the globe in April of 2020.
