Steve Wozniak announced that he had decided to establish his own space company. It was named Privateer and is supposed to be “different from all the others”.
The information available also indicates that its intention is to make the universe “more accessible and safer”. According to Gizmodo, this means that a well-known computer engineer and philanthropist wants to focus on cleaning waste in orbit.
This assumption is supported by the August press release Desktop Metal, which describes Privateer as “a new satellite company focused on monitoring and cleaning objects in space.”
In addition, Wozniak is known for his commitment to environmental protection – for example, last year he launched the Efforce project, which allows people to invest in various green technologies through cryptocurrency.
Recall that SpaceX boss Elon Musk has similar intentions. He recently came up with the idea that Starship spacecraft could be involved in cleaning up the wreckage of satellites, missiles, etc. in the future.
