Omega partners with Privateer to push the boundaries of interstellar environmental stewardship.
Did you know the first ever watch in space was the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch – worn by legendary astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong during the first moon landing in 1969?
Omega is extending its deep legacy of exploration in land, sea and space with its new partnership with Privateer, the latest venture founded by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Ripcord CEO Alex Fielding.
By mapping satellites and debris in Earth orbit with unprecedented accuracy and transparency, Privateer is making space predictable and safe, paving the way for the rapid growth of space exploration and commerce.
Approximately 40,000 pieces of human-made space “junk” are currently being tracked as they orbit the Earth, but that only includes objects larger than 10cm. Hundreds of thousands of other on-orbit hazards remain unidentified, untracked and unpredictable.
Steve Wozniak and Alex Fielding are both joined by astrodynamicist and space environmentalist Dr. Moriba Jah on the mission.
