"A Swiss satellite tackles space debris"

Full story here, from News Mediacom.

Basically they are looking at grappling with debris and deorbiting it so it burns up on reentry.

I could see this maybe working for a few larger object, don't think it will be very practical for the cast majority of space debris in Earth Orbit.

IMVHO this concept would make more sense for an anti Satellite weapon.
