Space Debris Collector: space cleaner

Vaughan Ling created a concept for spacecraft whose mission is to clean the space.

Called Space Debris Collector, this machine’s main function is to rid the area of space junk. This debris was left by the man after the various space missions. Currently, the area contains about 135 million objects centimeter. As small as they are, this debris can cause dire consequences when they collide with a satellite. Orbiting, they roam around our planet at high speeds and could pierce the wall of the spacecraft. This unit is equipped with a propulsion system electromagnetic plasma VASIMR and a solar sail.

Knowing that space tourism and space hotels are among the largest projects of the man for the future, such a concept is so very important.
