    Title

    Space Resources, the Enabler of the Earth-Moon Econosphere

    Description

    Last year, the Academy published a second study report showing case studies and legal status for the future exploration utilization of space mineral resources. The next step is to refine the process, propose projects, fund projects and actually mine space mineral resources. As the new Earth Moon infrastructure development occurs, the need will become obvious to have a cost-effective method of providing drinking water and fuel, from in-situ resources. This technical session will develop ideas and present approaches to enable the future growth inside the Earth Moon Econo-sphere.
