Keeping Space Clean from Orbiting Junk
Space Waste Solutions is dedicated to keeping space clean from orbiting junk, waste, and garbage while driving innovation to meet the emerging needs of waste management and recycling in space development.
From the beginning of the space race we have been launching objects into orbit around the earth that all have limited lifespans. There is an abundance of debris already orbiting the earth from both government and commercial sources. No one country is to blame as every country with a space program has contributed to the orbiting cloud of space trash now circling our planet.
Space Waste Solutions is committed to facing the challenges of both existing space waste and planning for proper waste management in future space development. Failure to properly plan for waste management has caused many building projects and developments to stall here on earth. Likewise, failure to plan and innovate solutions to space waste challenges will also lead to stalled development in space tourism and future exploration.
Many privately funded organizations and businesses have begun seeking creative solutions to the problem of orbiting space junk. Space Waste Solutions believes that the answers and innovations needed to overcome these challenges will come through commercial and private sector efforts, building on the rich history and foundation laid by government agencies such as NASA and the ESA. Highlighting advances driven by those such as Google’s XPrize and Lunar XPrize organizations, Made In Space’s space recycling and 3D printing efforts, along with many others is a major way Space Waste Solutions promotes the call for a response to this growing challenge.
