TOPIC: Outer space technology and exploration have reached a tipping point, so that mining and mineral processing in outer space is now a certainty and not a dream. Several competing private companies worldwide are well on the way to building spaceships to land on the Moon, capture asteroids, and eventually extract the resources for volatiles, rare earth metals, and Helium-3.

How and why are the Moon and asteroids and their resources of interest to private space industry companies? Why are the Moon and asteroids viewed as a potential lucrative business venture? What are the unique technical challenges for private companies for outer space travel and outer space mining? The primary international law regarding resource extraction on the moon and asteroids is the outdated 1967 Outer Space Treaty. How will private companies stake their mining claims in outer space and what are some of the legal battles that are expected to ensue? What laws are countries passing to deal with private space travel and mining? How are governments working with private companies and competing with private companies to achieve this “moonshot”?

This meeting is part of the 2016-2017 Inter-Society Technical & Social Event Series, hosted by SAMPE, ASME, ASM and AWS.
