Thank you for sharing.
Having several different engineering ideas on how to catch the junk in space, presented by different countries/companies.
Would this announcement to bring activity increase in this field.
Hopefully, till the planned 2025 launch there will be more consolidation between racing countries, and test launches will not bring more danger, but more supervision for any country launches.

that must be the costliest garbage disposal system in the history of mankind o_O but it is good to see that relevant steps are taken to clear out the orbit before debris starts colliding with functional satellites

Agree.

This is only a visible part of the iceberg.
But as all global approaches, this is a process.

We are already there with 22000 of junk pieces flying over our planet. As far as I know, there was never done anything on that.

Still, overcoming steps should also be a process. Maybe first steps may seem bizarre.

But still think of, as soon as flying to space became more common and cheaper, awareness came broad and first steps are not only planned, but finished engineering process and are getting ready to be launched.

Necessary to keep stiff whatever it takes as a number one priority, for my opinion.

Perhaps some of our up-and-coming tech knowledge students can get together online and make a Brain STORMING GROUPE focussing on HOW TO GET A SYSTEM TO RETRIEVE- OR - SEND OUT COLLECTED SPACE DEBRIS IN A EARTH TO SUN TRAJECTORY FOR DISPOSAL.

There are lots of internships proposed by different companies, including those directed especially for debris removals.

I am looking forward to such orchestration deployed for Earth surveillance and it’s citizens' urgent issues.

Space, Climate Change, and International Cooperation: SWFoundation and British Embassy are hosting an experts panel role in monitoring and tackling climate change.

These actions need strong, modern technology based companies to get involved (also with internship programs). One of the key features of success in space technology is the engagement of many countries and companies at the same time in order to have fast action due to the complexity of these projects.
