Scientists Impaled Space Junk With a Harpoon, Here’s Why That Matters
Space junk threatens to entomb Earth in an artificial bubble, but promising solutions for cleaning up our trash are on the horizon. Watch More Space Crafts! | https://bit.ly/2GqH0aO Read More:
The Space Junk Problem Is About To Get A Whole Lot Gnarlier
“Space junk is the colloquial name for orbital bits that do nothing useful: spent rockets, fragments splayed by collisions and degradation, old satellites no one cares about anymore. In total, they amount to millions of pieces of debris, many of which are large enough to seriously ding satellites and the International Space Station.” The quest to conquer Earth’s space junk problem
“Zombie satellites, rocket shards and collision debris are creating major traffic risks in orbits around the planet.” A satellite with a harpoon, net and drag sail to capture space junk is in orbit and will be tested soon
"The purpose of the RemoveDebris spacecraft is to demonstrate the effectiveness of debris nets and harpoons at capturing and removing space debris from orbit." ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.

ESA's detection expertise
What's the difference between spotting asteroids in space, and debris objects in Earth orbit? At first, both look like tiny dots streaming across the sky, against a backdrop of twinkling stars. As part of its Space Safety & Security activities, ESA brings together experts in asteroid and debris detection, asking what these two vital fields have in common, and how they can protect us from hazards in space. ★ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/ESAsubscribe and click twice on the bell button to receive our notifications.

What is RemoveDEBRIS mission and how it operates?
The RemoveDEBRIS mission will perform a number of active space debris removal technology demonstrations, testing novel technologies, representative of an operational scenario during a low-cost mission.
SSTL has designed and manufactured the Remove Debris satellite platform, which hosts the payloads for use in the debris removal demonstrations. These payloads, or technical content within them, have been produced by mission partners Airbus, ArianeGroup, CSEM, Inria, ISIS, SSC, and Stellenbosch University.
This Satellite Net Is Cleaning Up Space Junk
Space junk is increasingly becoming a big problem for the future of spaceflight, but RemoveDEBRIS is trying to come up with a solution. During a cleanup test that took place in September, the project, led by the University of Surrey, successfully deployed a net which captured a piece of debris that was orbiting around Earth. ► Subscribe for more tech & culture videos: http://on.mash.to/subscribe ◄

Space Debris: How much junk is in Space? - BBC What's New?
We've all heard about how important it is to not litter and to recycle our waste at home. Now there are concerns about the amount of rubbish floating around in Space! We rely on satellites for things like mobile phones, TV and GPS, but as more of them are launched the risk of space debris increases. Now, scientists at the Surrey Space Centre in the UK have invented a new way of cleaning it up.
A net successfully captured space junk
The net and its satellite are designed to capture debris orbiting the Earth. Learn more about this story at https://www.newsy.com/83664/ Find more videos like this at https://www.newsy.com Follow Newsy on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/newsyvideos

How do you clean up space junk? | Newsround
Check out this satellite that can clean up space rubbish from Earth's orbit It's not just here on planet earth that litter is a problem. So experts have fired a huge net into space as part of a plan to clean up the millions of pieces of rubbish floating around in the Earth's orbit. It was fired by a satellite called RemoveDEBRIS which will also try to use a harpoon - which is like a huge spear - to grab space junk.

Satellite launches net to clean up 'space junk' for the first time | ITV News
A British-designed satellite has tested technology for salvaging space junk for the first time. Remove debris, built to clean up thousands of potentially dangerous pieces of trash orbiting the Earth, deployed its net as part of a practice experiment in space on Sunday. The 220lb spacecraft, equipped with a net and harpoon, was designed and built by a consortium led by the University of Surrey and funded by the European Commission. • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj

Why These Lasers Are Too Powerful to Use in Space
Many countries have proposed developing giant lasers to shoot space junk into such tiny pieces so that they will no longer pose a threat to important spacecraft like the International Space Station. But, are space lasers really a thing?

NASA Studies Laser for Removing Space Junk
“Kessler pointed out that when the rate at which debris forms is faster than the rate at which it de-orbits, then the Earth would become surrounded by permanent belts of junk, a scenario now known as the Kessler syndrome.” Trash-Blasting Lasers Could Help Clean Up Space Junk, China Says
“China's willingness to experiment with rapid debris removal is appropriate considering that the country is considered one of the worst offenders when it comes to space junk, Universe Today reported. In 2007, a Chinese anti-satellite missile test was responsible for what is considered the most severe fragmentation of space junk in history.” China has a plan to clean up space junk with lasers
“For the sake of their study, the team conducted numerical simulations to see if an orbital station with a high-powered pulsed laser could make a dent in orbital debris. Based on their assessments of the velocity and trajectories of space junk, they found that an orbiting laser that had the same right ascension of ascending node (RAAN) as the debris itself would be effective at removing it.“ ____________________ Seeker explains every aspect of our world through a lens of science, inspiring a new generation of curious minds who want to know how today’s discoveries in science, math, engineering and technology are impacting our lives, and shaping our future.

This 19-year-old can keep astronauts safe from space junk
Space debris is a growing threat to space exploration. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO When 15-year-old Amber Yang first heard about space trash it gave her nightmares. How could such an imminent threat to space exploration be left on the back burner? After seeing videos with astronaut Scott Kelly, she decided to take matters into her own hands. Within a few years she consumed all the media she could on space debris, taught herself to code, and learned the ins and outs of astrophysics. By 18 she had developed an AI-based space debris tracking program that she claims is one of the most accurate in the world.
