ClearSpace was founded in 2018 out of the realization that in-orbit servicing and space debris removal are vital services for the future of space exploration and operations. In 2019, ClearSpace was selected by the European Space Agency to lead the first mission to remove debris from Orbit by 2025. In 2021, the UK Space Agency selected ClearSpace for the feasibility and requirements phase of another mission with the objective to remove two objects from space and refurbish the servicer in orbit. Today ClearSpace has assembled a robust industrial team across Europe and is building the path toward sustainable space operations.
