In a tweet, Wozniak shared a promotional video for the company, called Privateer Space, with a striking tone.

“It’s up to us to work together to do what is right and what is good,” the promo video says. “So here’s to taking care of what we have so the next generation can be better together.”

In a caption for the YouTube video, the company wrote that Privateer Space is “working to keep space safe and accessible to all humankind.”

“Co-founded by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Ripcord founder Alex Fielding, Privateer will be providing private audiences a glimpse into the companies future plans at AMOS Tech 2021 in September 2021 at the AMOS (Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies) conference in Maui, Hawaii,” it said.

Not much has been shared about the company yet. Privateer’s site simply says, “The sky is no longer the limit,” and “We are in stealth mode.”

This comes at a time when other tech leaders have launched their own space endeavours, including Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who created Blue Origin, and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who runs SpaceX.

Leaks say that they might fund space junk clean up

According to the leaks from Gizmodo, Wozniak may be funding a space junk cleanup company — something that makes a lot of sense, given the disastrous amount of garbage that’s been getting trapped in our planet’s orbit in recent decades. More leaks about the company like a press release by Desktop Metal describes Privateer as an upcoming satellite company focused on monitoring and cleaning up objects in space.
