Space debris removing mission

Fri Jun 18, 2021 8:00 am

Today space debris became rather an important issue to be solved in the space exploration area. That is why a lot of space companies wanna make some ``cleaning`` missions to clean the Earth`s orbit from this space junk. So could you please name some ``cleaning`` missions which are about to be launched in the nearest time?

I know about work at DLR and some Aussie university.
Mostly LASER based ablation decell.

There are 4 ways how we can handle with space junk 1)we can design & program sats such that they switch to a lower orbit when we replace a sat with a new one automatically and burn up in outer atmosphere 2)we can use high power lazer that could burn them up in the orbit. 3) we can send them toward sun where they would burn up. 4)or we can adopt a technique that require less sats. I guess the easiest way to cope with space junk is to make them burn down in the atmosphere. However, it depends on the size of some space debris. It can be so large that it won't just burn down in the atmosphere

I'd like to mention Rosalind Franklin Mars rover space mission. This mission will attempt to search for life on Mars. The launch is scheduled for 2022. Interesting fact, that this is the first Mars mission by British aerospace companies.

And this has what to do with “Space Junk”? Suggest you ask the Mods to put in the correct post.

Sorry for that, I made a mistake. I wanted to mention The Clearspace-1 satellite, or ‘The Claw’, represents the first step towards a clean space environment by being the first space debris removal dedicated mission. The mission is about to be launched soon. The information about that mission you can find with the help of the link I`ve shared or just google it
