A UK-led experiment to tackle space junk has been sent into orbit. It takes the form of a small satellite that will practise techniques for tracking debris and capturing it.
The RemoveDebris system is heading to the International Space Station where astronauts are expected to set the experiment running in late May.
Space junk is an ever-growing problem with more than 7,500 tonnes of redundant hardware now thought to be circling the Earth.
After a great deal of hard work and dedication, we are delighted to officially announce the launch. It can be accessed at the same URL:
We have been eager to make sure that your experience is as smooth as possible by simplifying the process of applying for roles, providing useful information about our services, and updating the look and feel to offer a clean, modern design and easy navigation.
The purpose behind the new look and feel of the Grafton Technology website is to better provide resources and information to clients and engineers. The website will highlight all of the tools and resources available at the click of a button.

Happy Easter from Grafton Technology, spring is finally upon us!
“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."
