Ablation is “the process of generating forces on objects by means of surface interactions with energy projected from a distant point”. Laser beams, directed from earth to intersect with objects in space, generate significant forces if the interaction is carefully controlled.
Up until now, the only way to avoid space debris was to adjust your course around it to prevent a collision. EOS is now fine-tuning technology that will allow pieces of space debris and other objects in space to be physically maneuvered into a different orbit using long range high power plasma beam (ablation).
