The Real Space Sweepers

On this new podcast, Astroscale’s Chris Blackerby and Charity Weeden bring their compelling experience and expertise to map out the technology, international policy, and scalability that will define the next generation of space exploration.

Astroscale was founded on the principal of wanting to remove debris that is currently in orbit in space, which could become a hazard in the future.

As a point of pride behind this mission, Astroscale’s team is affectionately nicknamed, “Space Sweepers.” The phrase is used across their organization, from social media to congratulating team members and adding new “Space Sweepers” to their family.

A new film on Netflix is ironically titled “Space Sweepers,” and the hosts of Space to Grow immediately knew that they had to watch it. Would the film live up to their idea? Is the film even really about space?

On this fun bonus segment, Chris Blackerby and Charity Weeden break down the newly released film and judge how accurate the science is behind the fiction.
