Space Debris Mitigation by FANTASTIC FOUR

Posted by Mahainn Somani
Our product Clean Horizons, an innovative project on Space Debris Mitigation is a system of 24 Debris towing vehicles called Federation Tugs and a station called DACS (Debris Accumulation and Crushing Station), where disintegration of the dumped debris will take place. Also,here scarce industrial metals (gallium, tantalum, platinum, indium and cobalt) will be separated from non scarce ones. the non scarce ones will be accumulated in metallic waste containers that will be jettisoned to burn up in the earth's atmosphere. The scarce metals will be stored separately in DACS and will be brought down later at the end of the mission. Clean Horizons will work in Low-Earth orbit.
