ClearSpace-1 is the world’s first ever space debris removal mission that is to be launched by the European Space Agency (ESA) with the help of a Swiss Startup. Under this mission, an experimental, four-armed robot will be used to capture a Vega Secondary Payload Adapter that was left behind by ESA’s Vega Launcher in 2013. This debris is located some 800 km above the Earth and weighs around 100 kg.
