// A SMALL TEAM TRAILBLAZING A NEW AREA OF SUSTAINABLE SPACE EXPLORATION

ClearSpace-1 is a pioneering mission to remove debris from Earth orbit

// WE NEED MORE SPACE

Heavy Space traffic ahead

Satellites are fundamental for our future and economy. The internet, goods shipping, autonomous cars, climate change monitoring, tsunami alert system, weather prediction, and many other vital services require satellites to work.

Yet, near-Earth space is like a high-speed motorway network that has been operating without a tow truck for more than 60 years. Meanwhile, space traffic is rapidly getting much denser. This poses a threat to the satellites we depend on.

// THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ERA

ClearSpace-1 is Mandated and Supported by ESA

In 2019, ESA selected ClearSpace from a field of more than a dozen candidates to lead the first mission to remove an ESA-owned item from orbit. The mission actively cleans up space while also trailblazing the technologies needed for future commercial debris removal. ClearSpace-1 will launch in 2025-26.

// THE MISSION

Laying the Foundations For a New Way to Maintain Objects in Orbit

In the past, abandoned and damaged satellites in orbit have been manually captured and repaired through astronaut-led missions using the space shuttle.

ClearSpace is building the technology to make these missions affordable. The operation to capture an object moving at 28’000Km/h in frictionless microgravity will have to occur in a precise choreography as the slightest contact significantly modifies the object’s trajectory and rotation.

The Highlights of This Unprecedented Project.
