Space mining is getting close to reality Space mining is getting close to reality
Published: 15 Dec 17
Space mining – the mining of bodies and other worlds in outer space for minerals and other natural resources – remains within the realm of science fiction. For now. But, during the younger years of most of the world’s current senior mining executives, personal communication devices (cell phones) were science fiction, as were a whole plethora of compact electronic and domestic devices that are today widely available, affordable and, indeed, nearly ubiquitous. It is very likely that, within the remaining lifespans of those self-same senior mining executives, space mining will become a scientific, technological, engineering and financial fact.
