Space Junk - we take out the trash
End-of-life satellites and other space junk left in orbit constitute a rapidly growing problem and have attracted great political attention because space junk is a threat to communications and national security. Space junk is a threat to the future use of space because of the danger of collisions between active satellites and disused ones abandoned in space. Researchers from Aalborg University Esbjerg have invented a simple self-expanding construction which will allow them to remove some of this space junk in the future.
