Novel study indicates that Mars habitability restricted by its small size

A new study conducted by Washington University in St. Louis suggests that the habitability of Mars is limited by its small size, which means it cannot hold large amounts of water.

Demonstrating repeated magnetic capture for space debris removal future 

Highlighting a way forward for space debris removal, Astroscale’s End-of-Life Services by Astroscale-demonstration (ELSA-d) effectively tested its capacity to capture its client spacecraft utilising the servicer’s magnetic capture system.
