debris

As I see objects every couple of minutes in the clear skies of the south of England, I can only assume your figures are for deliberately launched satellites and don't include all the other crap, like discarded rocket boosters etc.

There are far more than 4000 artificial objects in orbit, currently around the 20000 mark.
