Abstract
Mining technology to utilize vital lunar resources will be required for any commitment to permanent lunar basing. Lunar mining must be viewed both as a major supporting element for space resource commercialization and for creation of human settlements on lunar and planetary surfaces to support long-range space exploration. The Apollo missions to the lunar surface and results from fundamental research on analogue lunar rocks by the Bureau of Mines and others have provided the initial data for developing lunar mining technology. The multidisciplinary research projected in this paper outlines the scientific and engineering needs that are involved in realizing lunar mining goals.
