Product Description
Exodus Space Systems is now working on an exciting new class of spacecraft which build on our deployable toroidal array invention (patent pending).  We've identified a synergy between two needs: spin gravity research, and the removal of space debris from Low Earth Orbit. 

As it turns out, the same deployment, orientation and spin rate control mechanisms that we need for spin gravity research, are also really useful to achieve precise control when we fling snowballs of dry ice into space!  Why would we want to do that? Well, by putting dry ice pellets into the path of space debris targeted for removal, we can slow the debris down by just enough to bring it down into the atmosphere where it will burn up.  Dry ice is one of the softest substances known to man, so we're not at risk of blowing the debris up and creating more debris, and this also means that we don't need to match speeds with each and piece of debris, so we vastly reduce the cost of cleaning up outer space!

Of course, all this still costs money! And your support at this early stage will help us to take this exciting tech to the next level.  Plus you get this awesome desk toy which demonstrates the full power of SLS 3D printing, with its 62 individual, interconnected parts which are all printed in one go!
