New Startup Gets Big Contract To Clean Up Outer Space

A Swiss com­pa­ny is set to launch our plan­et’s first space cleanup mis­sion after the Euro­pean Space Agency (ESA) said on Thurs­day they were sign­ing a €86 mil­lion ($102 mil­lion) deal with the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Swiss start-up.

The firm, Clear­Space, hopes to launch a spe­cial satel­lite by 2025 that would be able to snatch pieces of space debris in the Earth­’s orbit. Cur­rent­ly, thou­sands of defunct satel­lites and many more small­er pieces of trash are cir­cling the plan­et, pos­ing an ever grow­ing col­li­sion risk to work­ing satel­lites and even the Inter­na­tion­al Space Station.
