Starship rocket could clean up space junk: SpaceX President

SpaceX's Starship rocket system could help solve the problem of space junk, according to the company's president and chief operating officer. "There's rocket bodies littering the space environment, and dead satellites," said Gwynne Shotwell in an online interview with Time Magazine.

SpaceX, which was founded by Elon Musk in 2002, believes its Starship rocket could help clear out space debris left in Earth's orbit, according to Shotwell. The rocket is designed to hold as many as 100 passengers and carry heavy payloads.
