"Aurora Propulsion Technologies, a Finnish company that develops thrusters
and de-orbiting modules for small satellites, will be sending its
technology to space for the first time. The company has signed on with
Rocket Lab to send its inaugural AuroraSat-1 cubesat into low Earth orbit
aboard an Electron rocket rideshare mission in the fourth quarter of this

Aurora is part of a small number of startups that have emerged over the
past few years whose technology could help solve a tricky problem that, for
most of us, can be summed up as ‘out of sight, out of mind’: space junk."
