Russian space debris collector will protect satellites from accidents
Scientists at the MAI Research Institute of Applied Mechanics and Electrodynamics are working on a new device - a space scavenger. In the future, it will help solve the problem of satellites colliding with debris from crashes and even nuclear reactor droplets. The ISS does collision-avoidance manoeuvres with large debris at least five times a year.
In this video, we tell how the scavenger will work in space and what size debris it will be able to cope with.
