Cleaning up space debris
How to spend NASA's 2019
Build 3 CubeSats
This will take nearly 2 1/2 years just to build one and cost $300,000 per cube.
Build a rocket
The rocket would take up to 5 years to build and cost $1.5 billion.
Launch the rocket
The rocket will be sent to orbit with the CubeSats.
CubeSats gather the debris
They will gather and collect the debris until it is full, which we should be able to track.
Check up on CubeSats
Every 2 to 3 years, the CubeSats will need to be replaced.
Teaming up with Space X
They are building a ship to help take down CubeSats.
Taking debris down
We will finally have the CubeSats with some of the valuable materials that once floated.
Reuse the debris
Some of what is floating can be used for other projects such as rocket, satellites, etc.
