The Space Debris Remover contains a piece of "soft" ferromagnetic material which can be temporarily magnetized. Debris in metal such as nickel, iron will attract to the induced magnet. After the remover attaches to the targeted debris, it will start speeding up and carry the debris away from its original orbit. Once the debris has been accelerated to required speed, the remover will change its direction toward to the Sun. The Space Debris Remover will demagnetize itself and detach from the debris after the debris is in right track toward to the Sun. Thereafter, the debris remover can travel to the International Space Station for recharging or refuel and carry on the next mission.
