The Snake: Space Debris Removal System



Space debris is a very serious problem that cannot be solved in it, even in the near future. Unfortunately, most of the proposed methods for space debris collector or removal technology are not successfully functional. Keeping in view the shortcoming of the existing methods for debris removal an active approach is needed in this regard required to be implemented purposefully. We are proposing combining mostly available technologies in a new way for cleaning the space junk. The basic idea about this proposal method totally depend on feeding technique and expansion body of snake. Even we consider this species anatomy for developing this system. In this paper we are proposing an idea to remove space junks in Low Earth Orbit (LEO).Our target is to capture the larger and small junk which involves materials of size between the ranges 0.4 – 10 feet or may be bigger.

Key Words

LEO (low earth orbit), Space debris, orbital debris, space junk, defunct satellites, movable gas thruster, extendable bag, snake Anatomy.
