Description

Both well known and respected, Baqui Heavy Industries has been a fixture of Yellowstone and Chasm City’s economy for decades. Originally founded by Corbin Angelique, the company soon found easy success within the outpost like nature of the Epsilion Eradani system at its inception.

Eventually Chasm City grew, and so did the company. Originally founded as a ship yard to repair and resupply the many ships passing through the system en route to a variety of other places, the company soon decided it was time to expand its horizons. Branching out into technology, with experience and expertise in repairs on the many systems and parts on a wide variety of ships; the company soon found themselves in high demand.

The current CEO and Owner, Claire Angelique-McGregor, brings both military and civilian expertise to the company.

This week, one of Chasm City's oldest companies announced Tuesday that they would begin to branch out in a new direction; Orbital Reclamation.
The CEO and Owner of Baqui Heavy Industries, Claire Angelique was quoted as saying, "Personally I believe that this is an untapped market; I don't think that even TechCon has considered this as a resource." Reclaiming debris that lay in certain orbits, while dirty, can lead to possibly very lucrative profits Ms. Angelique believes. With most of this "junk" laying in dangerous orbits that may cause problems for and eventually disrupt the normal flow of interstellar traffic patterns, is thought to be less that a centimeter in size. "A particle that tiny could cause catastrophic damage and a potentially life threatening decompression into a vacuum. In other words, we're looking at solving one of the potential causes of the Kessler Syndrome."

Kessler Syndrome is known as a cascading collision effect, in which the density of objects in low orbit is high enough that collisions between these objects could cause occur. In other words, the more space junk in orbit, the greater the likelihood of collisions which will generate more debris.
Meanwhile Yellowstone's large shipping industry to stands to gain a substantial amount of new revenue in this process of orbital reclamation, leading to clearer shipping lanes, parking orbits, and fewer incidents with crews taking shelter within life support pods due to dangerously close debris.

"On average you could say that many of these objects come about say 11 kilometers from a hull; I realize that doesn't sound dangerous or very close, but in terms of the "junk" that's up there… It's pretty damn close. Especially since these things are just zipping about out there with no real means of direction.", says Angelique.

This is not only a means of increased profit for Baqui, but also a means to aid the general populous; unlike many other companies this one seems to have more than just the profit on their minds when it comes to the bottom line. This may also be a potential means of revitalizing an aging planetary economy, and providing some much needed jobs within the tech sector.
