    I`ve recently found an interesting article about 3D printer which is used in aerospace area. Have you heard anything about that? This machine allows printing multi-composite parts simultaneously from several materials, which is infeasible in other types of aerospace 3d printing.

    Yeah, you are right. Actually, the usage of microsatellites became very significant in terms of the environmental preservation campaign. I like such the approach to the problem and I like the mission these microsats do. I was staggered that there is a special type of microsats that can track rare species of animals in order to prevent them from being killed by poachers.

    Desertification is a type of degradation of land in which the land becomes more arid. Desertification is a direct result of global warming, and approximately 12 million hectares of productive land becomes barren due to desertification annually. Remote sensing technology can be used to measure the extent of desertification. Could you ever thought that in order to fix that stuff scientists start to use satellite technology which helps scientists observe the land?

    Also, I wnna add that this new kind of rocket fuel has already been tested. And the result was rather good and it has shown that it`s 1% - 3% better than kerosene by its energy characteristics. I wonder if it`s possible to use such kind of fuel in long space journeys?

    Yeah, I`ve read the article about such convertion and I really liked it. But only particular kinds of plastic can be used to be converted into that new kind of rocket fuel. Polypropylene (PP) Polyester (PE) Polystyrene (PS) and their mixtures and analogs.

    Have you heard about the new special type of rocket fuel that is made from plastic waste? One company uses particular kinds of plastic to remake them in rocket fuel

    This project I`ve mentioned before it`s actually cleaning satellite and it`s called The Clearspace-1 satellite, or ‘The Claw’. It represents the first step towards a clean space environment by being the first space debris removal dedicated mission.

    Actually, it's not dangerous for humans on Earth but as I have already mentioned it's rather dangerous for spacecraft and for space companies who's spacecraft can collide and be damaged by space junk and whole mission can be under threat

    Yeah, we need to solve this issue because we are now close to ‘Kessler syndrome’, which represents a state where the object density is so high that one collision is enough to generate a cascade effect, leading to further collisions.

    I found out that some space company from GB is going to make so called cleaning mission that is about to clean Earth`s orbit from space junk. The Clearspace-1 satellite, or ‘The Claw’, represents the first step towards a clean space environment by being the first space debris removal dedicated mission.
