Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde is launching a large-scale project to solve the “problem with no solution” of waste and debris floating around in outer space.
Roosegaarde’s Space Waste Lab will use live installations and collaborative workshops to explore the various ways that floating space junk could be upcycled into useful and sustainable products.
According to Roosegaarde, there are currently more than 29,000 detectable objects larger than 10 centimetres floating around the earth. This space waste consists of waste parts and debris from rockets and satellites.
