Number of space debris in space orbit are constantly growing. 40000 space debris objects have been catalogued already in 2014 from that 17000 were in orbit. Facing the constant growth of debris in space, several technological solutions have been proposed by space agencies and industry that include deorbiting of debris (so-called “pulling technologies“ by attaching debris to a tether, “pushing technologies” to push debris into an ocean), moving it to safer orbits or salvaging it for reuse on other satellites or spacecraft. At the same time eco-friendly technologies are explored for spacecraft manufacturing to keep space as clean as possible.
