I think engineers will deal with the problem of compatibility faster than the problem of fragments. But also, if it were advisable to make such a station at all, then someone would have already started development. I have not heard of anything like this.
Perhaps they will think about it when the...
Some devices of this type will be able to refuel satellites. In general, I fantasize that someday there will be something like the ISS, only for satellites and space tugs. So that you can refuel and service everything that is in orbit.
It would be interesting to see how this should work as...
I agree. For the device to work correctly with a magnet, it will be necessary to synchronize the speed and direction of movement of the device with the fragments. And this task can be more costly than losses from collisions with particles.
Nevertheless, we already have some tested (on Earth, of...
As far as I know, magnets in space do not lose their properties. Why not use this? I have not heard of such developments either.
But Skyrora and a few other companies have some news about working and already tested prototypes.
True, these are quite compact devices. I wonder if this will be used...
In general, the tools for this are already available. Companies around the world are developing space tugs and other similar devices.
Some of them are completely ready for use. It remains only to start using them without violating any agreements on outer space.
So there is hope.
Thanks for such a helpful link. Having a telescope is great. Perhaps someday I will have it. With all these new missions and companions, I think there is something to see.
Curious how far we are from Kessler syndrome?
What apps do you use to find satellites? Does anyone here use such applications?
My app only finds the ISS. It would be interesting for me to try to see artificial satellites with the naked eye.
After all, there are more and more of them.
No joke, there should be about 58,000 satellites by 2029
