Between our home planet, Earth, and our star, the Sun, is a space that full of empty pockets and other pockets of debris. Close to Earth are numerous satellites, secret and public, working and decommissioned. The International Space Station is the largest of these objects and the only to contain human life. A few planets are in this space, but they are relatively small. And then there is the space. Empty space, cold, silent and alien. This in-between does not support life, which is just fine for all of the non-living objects there. For a person, this is dangerous territory.
