More than 8,000 tons of space debris endanger all space activities. Satellite operators pay more than €14 million a year for evasive maneuvers and 1 billion USD in insurance premiums. Orbit Recycling is changing this.
Large parts of the lunar station can be built with it, e.g. walls, power lines or heat storage systems.
