Space Junk: Will Space Still Be Usable In The Future?

Xander Hall


In this lecture Xander will give an overview of the issues of space debris, along with an insight into how to tackle the growing number of objects in space. The RemoveDEBRIS demonstrator satellite, launched in 2018, was the first satellite to demonstrate in-orbit capturing technologies and a wealth of data has been collected from the mission. This will be unpacked during the lecture with some other developments to highlight how the space environment can be kept sustainable for future use.

Xander Hall is a Mission Systems Engineer at Airbus Defence and Space, focusing on topics such as robotics and in-orbit servicing.
