Furthering Asteroid Resource Utilization In The Next Decade Through Technology Leadership


Asteroid mission

A significant opportunity for synergy between pure research and asteroid resource research exists.

We provide an overview of the state of the art in asteroid resource utilization, and highlight where we can accelerate the closing of knowledge gaps, leading to the utilization of asteroid resources for growing economic productivity in space.
