    Title

    Space Mineral Resources, Asteroid Mining and Lunar/Mars insitu

    Description

    Exploitation of space mineral resources is becoming a commercial space endeavor for the benefit of humanity and profit. In 2012, the IAA approved a broad study of the technology, economics, legal and policy aspects of identifying, obtaining, and using these resources. The question on the table is not “how” to leverage space minerals resources, but ”how best” to leverage them. The purpose of this session is to provide the current state of the art of the technology, economics, law & policy related to Space Mineral Resource (SMR) opportunities. Our objective will be to put a developmental roadmap anchored in realities of engineering, economics and legal/policy.
