how to clean up 8.1 million kilos of

space waste?

about

project by studio roosegaarde

Right now there are more than 29.000 objects larger than 10 centimeters floating around the earth, estimated as 8.1 million kilos. It is space waste; parts of broken rockets and satellites. This waste can damage our current satellites, with collisions creating more space waste and disturbing our digital communications. And nobody really knows how to fix it.

 

SPACE WASTE LAB is the multi-year living lab with the European Space Agency and Studio Roosegaarde to capture space waste and up-cycle it into sustainable products. The current SPACE WASTE LAB PERFORMANCE visualizes the space waste above your head real-time with large beams of light. The ambition is to create the first phase of Shooting Stars from captured space waste at Dubai World Expo 2020 or Floriade 2022.
