Steve Wozniak to create private space-debris cleaning company


Recommended Posts


Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is starting a private space company called Privateer.

The company has been founded alongside Alex Fielding, who was a member of the first iMac team and founded “Wheels of Zeus” (‘WoZ’) in 2002 – a company that created wireless location trackers - but it is unclear exactly what the company will do.

Privateer’s website is currently in “stealth mode”, with more details to be revealed at the AMOS (Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance) 2021 conference, which starts today.

Well, I hope it's in the shape of a very large vacuum with a rightly-sized robot maneuvering it... 🤣

Pretty cool news. I think the pay-off could be huge someday if for example governments started requiring private companies to do more to clean up their space junk. Having a company around ready to provide their service when it's needed could be extremely lucrative.
