    CleanSpace One - a Swiss satellite to tackle space junk

    Uploaded on Feb 14, 2012

    Swiss Space Center at EPFL just launched the "CleanSpace One" project. The aim is to design and build a satellite that will chase, grab and destroy a space debris - namely one of the first Swiss satellites, Swisscube-1 or TIsat-1.

    Space clean-up satellite takes off with Swiss Space Systems

    Published on Sep 10, 2013

    EPFL's CleanSpace One satellite aims to clean up space by deorbiting debris. Thanks to a partnership with Swiss Space Systems - S3, the first janitor satellite will be deployed in 2018 using their revolutionary waste free and cost-effective launch system.

    A giant Pac-Man to gobble up space debris

    Published on Jul 5, 2015

    The Clean Space One Project has passed a milestone. The space cleanup satellite will deploy a conical net to capture the small SwissCube satellite before destroying it in the atmosphere. It’s one of the solutions being tested for eliminating dangerous debris orbiting the Earth. More on

    Clean Space: Netting a satellite

    Published on Jun 9, 2016

    ESA’s proposed e.Deorbit mission plans to demonstrate the retrieval and disposal of a derelict satellite from low-Earth orbit. The mission needs to capture a massive, drifting object left in an uncertain state, which may well be tumbling rapidly. Several capture mechanisms are being studied in parallel – including casting a net.

    Polish company SKA Polska won this new ESA Member State’s first competitive contract to design a prototype net gun that could be tested in microgravity on a parabolic flight. Wojtek Go?ebiowski of SKA Polska brought it along to the Industry Days of ESA’s Clean Space initiative – tasked with safeguarding both terrestrial and orbital environments – in May 2016. The net gun is comparatively low power (because it was designed for weightlessness) but here he demonstrates how it works on some low-flying drones. Results from firing the net, which is multi-coloured to make it easier to track by cameras, are being used to sharpen the fidelity of software models of net behaviour.

    ESA's active debris removal mission: e.Deorbit (with annotations)

    Published on Jul 5, 2016

    ESA's Clean Space initiative is studying an active debris removal mission called e.Deorbit, which will target an ESA-owned derelict satellite in low orbit, capture it, then safely burn it up in a controlled atmospheric reentry. e.Deorbit will be the world's first active debris removal mission, and will provide an opportunity for European industries to showcase their technological capabilities to a global audience.
