COMPASS at PoliMi Open Day

At the PoliMi open day, COMPASS provided an immersive journey into the intricate issue of space debris through the lens of virtual reality. With VR technology, attendees were transported into Earth’s orbit, where thousands of objects occupy space.

The visual representation offered by COMPASS not only showcased the sheer volume of debris but also highlighted the critical need for sustainable space practices and debris mitigation strategies. In occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo mission COMPASS demonstrated in VR how the Apollo trajectory would be if it would fly in 2019 through the space debris ring. This impressively demonstrates the challenges space operations face today due to the space debris problem.
