Asteroid Mining and Space Based Economy Asteroid mining could start 15-20 years from now Asteroid Mining is inevitable consequence of Space becoming more accessible and affordable. Number of companies have already set their goals of prospecting nearby asteroids. Mining space rocks for valuable resources can become reality within two decade. Great enabler being increased competition in the space launch market, with companies such as SpaceX and Blue Origin reducing the costs of launching stuff in to Space by a significant margin. Accessing space will become affordable even for small start-ups such as DSI or Planetary Resources. One the biggest proponents of Space based economy and asteroid mining is Jeff Bezos, current CEO of Amazon. His vision calls for million people working in space by 2100 and Asteroid Mining forming the core of future space based economy. Construction of large orbital habitats housing thousands of future space travellers and explorers. Increasingly large mining conglomerates will look at opportunities in nearby asteroids as returns on investment and these will feed further opportunities available, increasing exponentially. But any industry must start somewhere, and smaller outfits with great vision will start small scale prospecting nearby asteroids 20 years from now, at which point the surrounding ecosystem will begin to grow opening doors for many more players to join the game. The California gold rush in dying years of 19 century would pale in comparison. Recent discovery of large underground cave on the Moon by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Jaxa) confirmed the presence of a cave after examining the hole using radio waves. The chasm, 50km (31 miles) long and 100 metres wide, appears to be structurally sound and its rocks may contain ice or water deposits that could be turned into fuel, according to data sent back by the orbiter, nicknamed Kaguya after the moon princess in a Japanese fairytale. Opening the moon for eventual exploitation and habitation in not too distant future. Although current treaties prevent industrial scale exploitation of the moon, however for growing Lunar colony it would be quite feasible to see development of some sort of mining and exploitation process in not too distant future. Future asteroid mining prospects remain very positive, especially with the involvement of some major outfits such as Blue Origin. The driving force of future industrial growth will be space based. There are asteroids which contain more gold and platinum than we ever mined in entire human history. With some estimates putting value of platinum alone at $10 quadrillion only in one asteroid, Psyche. Future of humanity is space based, how fast we achieve the next step, remains to be seen.

You care about the future of our planet. You traded in your gas-guzzling SUV for a Prius and your Keurig for a Coffee Maker -- and if enough of us do that, we’ll save the Earth, right? Well, we are dangerously close to collapsing our own ecosystem and we are running out of time. In this persuasive talk, James Orsulak argues that the only way to really make a difference is to look up. James Orsulak serves as the Director of Business Development at Planetary Resources, an asteroid mining company that has embarked on the world’s first commercial deep space exploration. The company focuses on technologies such as rocket propellant, water for life support functions, and construction materials sourced from asteroids. Previously, James spent a decade developing industrial-scale fueling stations on Earth. He is an avid gardener who lives in Denver with his amazing wife, 2-year-old twins and a rambunctious Goldendoodle named Waffles.

Perry Solo Practitioner, State Bar of Texas, USA Off-Earth Mining under the Outer Space Treaty: Legal with Future Challenges Mining asteroids and planets other than the Earth is compatible with the Outer Space Treaty. The “use-but-no-territorial-ownership” regime created by the Outer Space Treaty is similar to that of the high seas in many respects (allowing for some differences such as with regard to liability). Countries are well within their rights and obligations under the Outer Space Treaty to pass legislation allowing ownership of extracted resources. Under international law and the four main space treaties, it does not matter whether the resources are extracted by a government entity, a private company, or a public-private partnership, national governments may authorize resource extraction activities by any of these types of entities. In the future, some problems may arise if space activities on asteroids, moons, and planets start to operate in a way which resembles activities on land rather than activities on the high seas. Current international space law is sufficient to al low for private profit, but may have difficulties dealing with disputes arising when many Off-Earth mining activities are conducted in close proximity, especially when permanent installations are constructed. Ian Perry is an attorney currently working in Houston Texas. He has completed a Master of Laws in Air and Space Law and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Mississippi. He was a member of the 2015 Manfred Lacks (space law) Moot Court World Champion team (that year’s problem, incidentally, involved asteroids). Mr. Perry is the author of a paper on space resources published in Astropolitics, and co-authored a paper presented at IAC 2016 on the same subject. This year he coached the winning team of the Africa round, which will be competing in Adelaide at IAC 2017.

Asteroids are “space rocks” that have been leftover from the formation of our solar system billions of years ago. A lot of these remnants contain elements that would be useful not only here on Earth, but also for the development of space colonization and infrastructure as well. It is estimated that at current consumption, key resources needed for modern industry could be exhausted within 50 to 60 years! Not to mention, there is also a financial incentive for companies to invest in the research and production of vehicles and equipment that are capable of mining asteroids. Asteroid mining has the potential to make the first company to successfully do so extremely wealthy, and out of this the world’s first trillionaire will likely arise. However, the idea is not without criticism. Opponents to the concept argue that the risk involved pales in comparison to the potential reward. Despite this, looking outside of Earth for resources seems inevitable if humans are ever to venture elsewhere in the universe.

www.undergroundworldnews.com After much delay, an important space bill has finally passed in the Senate. The Space Act of 2015 would do a lot of things to encourage the private space industry--including extending the "learning period" wherein fledgling spaceflight companies can operate without too much government oversight. It would also give companies the rights to the resources they might one day extract from asteroids, such as platinum and water (which, believe it or not, is a valuable resource in space). The bill has just passed in the Senate with unanimous approval and a few amendments. Now it will be sent back to the House of Representatives, which is expected to approve the changes, and then on to President Obama. Although the bill hasn't officially been signed into law yet, Planetary Resources--one such company that hopes to extract resources from asteroids--issued an effusive letter thanking the Congressmen who supported the bill.

Science and technology have rapidly developed to enable us to find out the important minerals in asteroids that can be used to produce electronic devices on earth, and support space travel outside earth. If enough investments can be placed in this adventure, resources extracted from asteroids can be used to refuel space shuttles after they have left earth and dramatically decrease the cost of asteroid mining. Currently there are already several large corporations making investments in it with the support from their governments. The other side of this huge opportunity is the extreme danger in it. Because currently there is only one effective treaty that regulates space exploration, which is the Outer Space Treaty, and there is a loophole in this treaty that allows corporations or individuals to claim territories in outer space, this opens possibilities for national governments to control territories in space through the corporations under their regime. If each country passes its own laws to allow its corporations to have property rights to the asteroid they mine, then what happens if one corporation from China and another one from the U.S. both mine the same asteroid in space? If we use the old way of colonization in space, then we will have endless wars to fight, because of the huge number of asteroids out there. That is why asteroid mining can be a disaster for human civilizations, and why new international space law is necessary to asteroid mining.

A group of US billionaires - including director James Cameron and the co-founders of internet search company Google - have announced plans to mine asteroids in space for resources such as ice, fuel and precious minerals. The new firm, Planetary Resources, plans to launch a telescope capable of tracking asteroids - left over from the Big Bang - as they pass-by the Earth in hopes of finding resources for further human endeavours in space.

In November 2015 President Barack Obama signed a very forward-looking law that legalizes commercial asteroid mining. But it has met with skepticism from some experts in international law, who say the right to harvest resources from a space rock is not the U.S.’s to give. The Outer Space Treaty of 1967, for instance, says signatories should avoid “harmful contamination” of the Moon and other celestial bodies, which are “not subject to national appropriation.” But the treaty is silent on private property rights. Particularly happy with the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act are firms like Deep Space Industries (see clip below) and Planetary Resources, a 2010-founded firm seeking to extract water, important materials, and minerals from asteroids and profit from them. The U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act specifically refers to “asteroid resource utilization.” This excerpt is from the legislative summary: "Any asteroid resources obtained in outer space are the property of the entity that obtained them, which shall be entitled to all property rights to them, consistent with applicable federal law and existing international obligations." Julian Ku, a professor of international law at Hofstra University, said the law’s focus on private rights avoids a collision with the 1967 Outer Space Treaty: “All it does is allow private US citizens to possess, own, transport, use, and sell extraterrestrial resources without violating US law,” he says. On the other hand, it is also true that other spacefaring countries could allow their citizens to do the same. Indeed, I think their government space agencies could probably also do so, as long as they are not “claiming sovereignty.” Dr. Gbenga Oduntan of University of Kent, an international commercial law expert, said that it can be assumed that the list of states with access to outer space will grow from the current dozen or so, and institute their own space mining programs. “That means that the pristine conditions of the cradle of nature from which our own Earth was born may become irrevocably altered forever - making it harder to trace how we came into being,” he wrote, warning that once celestial bodies are contaminated with earthly microbes, humans’ chances of discovering alien life could be ruined. Dr. Oduntan added that space mining could also potentially damage the environment surrounding Earth and eventually result in resource-centered conflict. Without an explicit international treaty regulating commercial space resource exploitation, it will ultimately be a question of each country’s domestic regulations. Can the U.S. live with that result? If not, there is still time to pass another law. Asteroid mining company Planetary Resources, whose name is aspirational at this point, expects the fun to begin as soon as 2025.

Luxembourg may be one of Europe's tiniest states with an economy fuelled with iron and steel, but don't let its diminutive size fool you. The country is keen on sending miners to outer space to source minerals. The first mission to an asteroid is expected within the next three years. Much of this effort is due to Etienne Schneider, Luxembourg's Deputy Prime Minister, who wants to turn the country into an outer space powerhouse. Take a listen as Mr. Schneider tells Tian Wei how his country plans to be a leader in asteroid mining.

Chris Lewicki of Planetary Resources talks asteroid mining with INN Senior Editor Andrew Topf. In this interview at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference 2014, Lewicki says his company, whose high profile backers include James Cameron, Larry Page and Richard Branson, is looking at identifying asteroids and eventually extracting minerals and water from them for transport back to earth. Lewicki said that Planetary Resources, a Seattle-based private company, is open to going public, and he sees "space resources" as a tremendous growth opportunity for investors.
