How many satellites revolve around the Earth

Since the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, the first artificial satellite of the Earth, in 1957, mankind has steadily launched more and more such objects into orbit. The second half of the 20th century saw slow but steady growth, with roughly 60 to 100 satellites launched annually until the early 2010s. But since then, the pace has skyrocketed.

By 2020, as a result of 114 launches, about 1,300 satellites were launched into space. Then humanity for the first time exceeded the mark of 1000 new satellites per year. But no year in the past compares to 2021. As of September 16, about 1,400 new satellites have already begun to orbit the Earth, and their number will only increase over the course of the year. As of September 22, 2021, there are a total of 7,890 satellites in space.

In the south of the United States, traces of a person aged 23 thousand years were found – this contradicts the theories of the settlement of America. Science believes that people could not come to the area of ​​modern New Mexico earlier than 16-17.5 thousand years ago – they were hampered by the Pleistocene glaciation, which was an insurmountable obstacle for ancient people.

It is reliably known that the passages deep into North America opened in the glacier only 13-16 thousand years ago. This may indicate that people came to America even before the last glacial maximum – this is the most plausible explanation. But this hypothesis negates the existing picture of human dispersal around the planet, according to which people left Africa and migrated across the continents for tens of thousands of years.
