Surrey-built space sail successfully deployed on commercial mission

A pair of space sails designed and manufactured by the University of Surrey team behind RemoveDEBRIS – a project that demonstrated a number of world-first active debris removal technologies – have been successfully deployed. The sails are now accelerating the re-entry of the structures from Spaceflight’s historic SSO-A rideshare mission, which launched more than 60 satellites from a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in December 2018.
