1st Satellite Built to Harpoon Space Junk for Disposal Begins Test Flight

The first spacecraft to demonstrate active space debris-removal technologies by using harpoon, a net, and a drag sail in orbit has been released from the International Space Station to commence its mission. This concept is pretty fascinating and could make space safer for our satellites and astronauts.
