Abstract
NASA has identified natural resource utilization as critical to any long-range space exploration program. The mining community is uniquely qualified to provide NASA assistance in developing technology for mining and processing raw materials found in space. This U.S. Bureau of Mines paper reviews current mining research that can provide the basis for studies focused on space. The paper also describes how experience and expertise in mining and processing can assist in achieving NASA's resource utilization goals in the most efficient and least costly manner and, at the same time, benefit the domestic mining industry.
