A Space Debris Slingshot
Texas A&M University's Sling-Sat Space Sweeper proposes swinging capturing an object, swinging it towards Earth's atmosphere, and then using the momentum to sail on to the next piece of space debris for removal.
Snagging and Moving Space Junk
The e.DeOrbit mission would seek out satellite debris in a polar orbit at an altitude between 800 and 1,000 kilometers (500 to 620 miles). The European Space Agency is considering several kinds of "capture mechanisms" to pick up the debris, such as nets, harpoons, robotic arms and tentacles.
A giant Pac-Man to gobble up space debris
The space cleanup satellite CleanSpace One will deploy a conical net to capture small satellite pieces before destroying them in the atmosphere.
CleanSpace One could be launched as early as 2018 in collaboration with the company S3, headquartered in Payerne.
Each team will be designated an amount of collected space debris. This will constitute the main material for the avatar skin.
will consist of 5 to 7 astronauts who will work close together and with the team on Earth to build the skin of the avatar
The Rigs Structure
will be controlled by athletes on Earth with sensors connected to their main joints. This will constitute the skeleton of the avatar. The avatar will be used in the future for different kinds of space performances.
