Plan to Recycle $300 Billion Worth of Space Debris

Plan to Recycle $300 Billion Worth of Space Debris

There are several solutions being proposed. One of the leading solutions is by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) which has a plan to recycle billions of dollars worth of non-working satellites. The agency announced last week that there is more than $300 billion worth of satellites drifting through space 22,000 miles from the Earth’s surface. All of these are defunct or obsolete but still have many working parts. Through DARPA’s Phoenix Program , they plan to harvest these parts like antennae and reuse them in new projects. This could save the Defense Department millions of dollars.
