John Batchelor and I welcomed Jeromy Grimmett, CEO of Rogue Space Systems, to discuss the Space Force plan Orbital Prime which will select winning company technology to partner with to remove LEO space debris. Rogue Space Systems is one of the companies submitting a proposal for their debris removing technology. Jeromy talked about their project as well as robots and their business plan. For example, Rogue will not be selling the robots as they want lease and operate them. He also talked about their debris plans being Active Debris removal plans, not passive plus he explained the difference. This was a one segment Hotel Mars program running about ten minutes. A definite must listen to program.
