HOW TO SECURE SPACEFLIGHT SAFETY: ASIAN START-UP SOLVES SPACE DEBRIS ISSUES
Economy of space market has evolved more than ever thanks to various new space initiatives such as private sectors who play leading roles for constellation, Moon and/or Mars explorations, space mining, and innovative earth observations.
Space technologies are becoming essential to our daily lives. However, the density of space debris has nearly reached a critical figure and a chain reaction of collisions can happen in any near future. In other words, our space assets are at risk of deterioration and space will no longer be sustainable.
Astroscale has been developing End-of-Life management service satellite – the ELSA series, to ensure no defunct satellites remain in outer space in the era of satellite proliferation. Another mission called IDEA OSG 1 will be launching early next year; the aim is to collect and measure sub-millimeter sized debris environment through timely mapping and tracking capabilities in order to include the space debris regime in the model for the Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) environment.
Space debris issue is a complex issue for technology, business models, and regulation. Nobu will explain how a start-up company like Astroscale can address this large problem in a practical manner.
