IX Ciclo de Conferências Internacionais ECATI/MCB
"Humanity has been shooting things into space for a few decades now, and we’ve gotten pretty good at it. What we haven’t gotten so good at is bringing things back down." (extremetech, 2017)
In this seminar we will present the latest advances and strategies under consideration within the ESA's clean space program. An introduction to control engineering will be presented with particular emphasis in its role in Active Space Debris Removal (ADR).
