Abstract

Neil Armstrong, the very first human to step on the Moon, would never have predicted the advancements, ramping human interest, opportunities and sheer aspirations contained within the contemporary space community, accelerating space exploration at the technological pace it has since that landmark day for humanity in July 1969. One such phenomena he wouldn’t have likely considered is that of space asteroid mining, which details the extraction of raw materials from any given asteroid or moon identified as a viable target.
