    Default The difference between "pathways", "tracks", and "orbits"

    What is the difference between "pathways", "tracks", and "orbits" ?
    Here is the context:
    The outer space is full of countless layers of pathways, tarcks, or orbits.

    Each of these words should be available in the dictionary. I'm afraid as they are used here, they are rather meaningless.

    Space is filled with orbits? There are infinite "orbits" about any body, so I have no idea what the point could be (other than they are countless). Sorry!

    It's also just "outer space", not "the outer space".
