Worst Waste In Space | Garbage Truck Solution

The room is ready for cleaning. There is so much junk floating around that missiles, satellites, and spaceships can fly to pieces. The first garbage truck will, therefore, soon be transported to the universe. Worst Waste In Space | Garbage Truck Solution

Waste In Space

The chance of collisions becomes greater, says Ron Noomen, assistant professor of astrodynamics and satellite systems at TU Delft. "Artmen who no longer function sometimes keep floating around or they fall apart from old age. Sometimes leftovers of fuel or batteries explode in satellites whose useful life is at an end. For example, rocket stages also float through space. With more and more rockets, satellites, and space debris, it is understandable that objects can crash against each other. Even a 2-millimeter particle can cause enormous damage to a satellite."

7,500 Tonnes Of Space Waste Junk Above Our Heads

There are an estimated 7,500 tonnes of junk above our heads. That is why the British send a 'rubbish collection truck' into space this winter. Their invention, the CubeSail, is a three-kilo box with no garbage collectors in fluorescent jackets but a kind of safety net. The CubeSail can be attached to satellites or rocket motors. When they are no longer needed, a screen of five by five meters is unfolded out of the box. The space waste flies into orbits in which the still working satellites and space stations float.
Since then, the Soviet Union launched in October 1957 the Sputnik, the first satellite in. Roughly six thousand were followed. Half of these satellites are still operational, according to the American space agency NASA.
A large part of the satellites is intended for communication, the GPS on the navigation system in the car, or observing, for example, the oceans or forests on the earth. Armed conflicts are also being sent more and more through space. Countries use their satellites for precision guidance of weapons or the control of uncrewed aircraft.

CubeSail is a nano-scale flight experiment to demonstrate deployment and control of a single 250-meter solar sail blade as a low-cost risk reduction precursor of the advanced interplanetary UltraSail concept (four 5-kilometer blades with approximately 100,000 m2 of sail area). CubeSail was built by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and CU Aerospace, the same team that designed the I-Sail and UltraSail concepts funded by NASA’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. CubeSail represents an affordable stepping-stone towards the future development of the UltraSail solar sail concept that would enable very high-energy inner heliosphere and interstellar scientific missions. Ten CubeSats on the Rocket Lab flight are launching as the 19th Educational Launch of NanoSatellites (ELaNa) mission through NASA’s CubeSat Launch Initiative.


When the satellites and missiles are at the end of their lifespan, they drop towards the earth, where they eventually burn in the atmosphere or crash into the ocean in the case of large specimens. The decline is so slow that they get in the way of working satellites and spaceships.
The CubeSail can offer a solution to that problem, but according to Noomen, waste will always float in space. "If the debris has already gone, it sometimes takes hundreds of years. Therefore, in human-crewed space flights, capsules are provided with extra thick skin around the spaceship. The layer is not resistant to collisions with large debris, but it keeps small waste reasonably good.''

If the debris starts to decline, it could take hundreds of years.

American And A Russian Communications Satellite Collided

In 2009, the area experienced its first serious traffic accident. At about 800 kilometers above Siberia, an American and a Russian communications satellite collided. As a result of the collision, two large clouds of rubble arose. This is an example of the worst waste in space | garbage truck solution
Agreements have been made for international waters and airspace on earth. A well-functioning treaty about what is and is not allowed in space does not yet exist. Russia and China proposed in 2008 to draw up a code of conduct, but the United States was bothering. Later, Moscow and Beijing rejected a proposal from the US and the European Union.
In the meantime, space organizations from many countries have agreed to cancel deposited thrusters and satellites that are no longer being used. They return to the earth in a controlled manner or are taken to an orbit where they do not pose a threat to space traffic.

Cleaning Up The Debris Is A Bigger Problem Than The Space Waste Itself

That appointment was also badly needed, says Noomen. "The amount of waste could grow because everyone did what they wanted. Space agencies now adhere to strict rules to limit the amount of debris left in space. The question is whether the emerging commercial space companies will do so. If they leave their internet satellites lying around, cleaning will look like mopping with an open tap.'
Even though debris is the biggest problem in space travel, the polluters seem to find still the costs of cleaning up the debris a bigger problem than the rubble itself."
The British University of Surrey is now taking the lead, even if it is a trial. Under the name, 'RemoveDebris' is now a 17 million euro space shuttle ready that serves as a garbage truck. The CubeSail will be connected to the international space station ISS.
There the British will try different techniques to clean up the waste. There is a harpoon for bringing in large pieces. Also, 'test waste' is used, which is taken away and brought back to earth. The intention is that future garbage trucks with debris will burn out in the atmosphere.
