    Title

    Space Elevator Tether and Space Mineral Resources

    Description

    The IAA study, "Space Elevators - Feasibility and Next Steps" completed in 2013 looked at engineering, operational, and funding steps towards an operational capability. The first part of this session will evaluate the current and near-term potential of the necessary technologies. In addition, the session can accept the analysis of other issues leveraging this remarkable transportation capability of routine, inexpensive and safe access to our solar system. The second part of this session will focus on the Exploitation of space mineral resources. In 2015, the IAA published a broad study of the technology, economics, legal and policy aspects of identifying, obtaining, and using these resources. This part of the session will provide the current state of the art of the technology, economics, law & policy related to Space Mineral Resource (SMR) opportunities. The goal will be to present development roadmaps anchored in realities of engineering, economics and legal/policy.
