Altius Space Machines: Sticky Boom Markets

Jon, Mike, and Forrest of Altius Space Machines stopped by my house after their successful Zero-G flight.  I only got a few hours with them, but I did get to see (and touch) their current "Sticky Boom" prototype.  Below is my pencast (from LiveScribe) based on conversations with Altius founder, Jon Goff. 

In addition to a summary of the technology, the pencast discusses three potential Sticky Boom markets:
  1. Cleaning up space debris
  2. Enhancing science missions
  3. Enabling micro-cargo delivery to space stations

And for those that missed it, here is ASM's highlights from Saturday's Zero-G flight.
