Photos of the Day: Where to Grab Space Debris

September 11, 2014 10:22 am | by Massachusetts Institute of Technology | Comments

Algorithm tested aboard the International Space Station analyzes the rotation of objects in space. Objects in space tend to spin — and spin in a way that’s totally different from the way they spin on earth. Understanding how objects are spinning, where their centers of mass are, and how their mass is distributed is crucial to any number...
