The ESA Is Sending a Robotic Junk Collector Into Space

The ESA Is Sending a Robotic Junk Collector Into Space | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY TODAY | Scoop.it
The European Space Agency has officially approved funding for ClearSpace-1 — the world's first mission dedicated to cleaning up space junk.
Al Cannistra's insight:

wasn't that long ago someone invented a vacuum that patrols your home on it's own - sweeping up dust and other debris - and now a "junk collector" that scours up space debris at 20,000 kph!

wonder just want it can retrieve - maybe technology from other countries? maybe the laws of the sea will apply - finders keepers?

Houston, we have a space debris problem | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY TODAY | Scoop.it
The European Space Agency's film "Space Debris - A Journey to Earth" takes a somber look at the threats of space junk.
Al Cannistra's insight:

now if there is some way to bring all this junk back to earth - without burning it up - what an opportunity for selling on eBay :-)
