Prospecting for Resources on a near-Earth asteroid

Prospector-1: First Commercial Interplanetary Mining Mission

Deep Space Industries announced today its plans to fly the world’s first commercial interplanetary mining mission. Prospector-1™ will fly to and rendezvous with a near-Earth asteroid, and investigate the object to determine its value as a source of space resources. This mission is an important step in the company’s overall plans to harvest and supply in-space resources to support the growing space economy. Read More…

Prospector-X: An International Mission to Test Technologies for Asteroid Mining

Asteroid mining company Deep Space Industries, together with the Luxembourg Government and the Société Nationale de Crédit et d’Investissement (SNCI), the national banking institution in Luxembourg, have signed an agreement formalizing their partnership to explore, use, and commercialize space resources as part of Luxembourg’s spaceresources.lu initiative.

Asteroid Profile: 101955 Bennu

It’s called Bennu. And scientists have been waiting for a long time to get their hands on it. Scheduled for a September 8 launch, NASA is set to embark on the first asteroid sample return mission in its history. Their deep space explorer, OSIRIS-REx, is the third spacecraft in NASA’s New Frontiers Program. The other two include the wildly successful New Horizons mission to Pluto last year, and spacecraft Juno’s historic long-term orbit of Jupiter which began in August. Read More…

Asteroids are cold, dead worlds

As mankind endeavors to open the frontier of space, and companies like Deep Space Industries prepare for asteroid mining missions in the next few years, concerns about environmental impact are being raised. So we asked Dr. John S. Lewis, chief scientist at DSI, about the realities of asteroid environments and the impact human activities will have on our near-Earth orbital companions. Read More…

Asteroid Profile: 2016 HO3

Meet near-Earth asteroid 2016 HO3. The newly-discovered “quasi-satellite” that NASA scientists say has been locked in a celestial dance with Earth for more than a century and will continue to be for centuries to come. With a width of only 40–100 meters and an average distance from Earth of 26.5 million kilometers, this curious companion was detected on April 27, 2016 by the Pan-STARRS 1 asteroid survey telescope on Haleakala, Hawaii, operated by the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy and funded by NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office.

How to Succeed in the Asteroid Business Without Really Mining

WHEN MOST PEOPLE think of asteroids, they might think of phrases like “civilization killer.” Or “boring rock.” But other people think “business opportunity.” A growing set of companies, including Deep Space Industries and Planetary Resources, want to mine asteroids for all they’re worth. After digging out materials like water and precious metals, entrepreneurs can sell those commodities in space—to the maybe-burgeoning exploration industry—and back on Earth. Read More…
