The Space Resources Roundtable (SRR) and the Planetary & Terrestrial Mining Sciences Symposium (PTMSS) in collaboration with the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) and sponsored by Honeybee Robotics and Advanced Space, will convene their tenth joint meeting in June 11-14, 2019 at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, CO.

Given the rapidly increasing interest on In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) activities in space, the Moon, Mars, and asteroids from space agencies around the world, the private sector, academic institutions, and from recent legislation introduced for commercial space-resources extraction, this meeting will provide a unique and timely forum for discussion of the near- and long-term opportunities for space resources.

The meeting will be organized to accommodate technical presentations and roundtable discussions around the following topics:

  1. The Moon: First case for ISRU?
  2. Mars: Preparing to live and work on the Red Planet
  3. Asteroids: Stepping stones towards a space resources infrastructure
  4. Manufacturing in Space: Taking advantage of the space environment
  5. Space commerce, policy and legal issues, and international efforts: A multi-dimensional endeavor

Abstracts for the 10th joint meeting of the Space Resources Roundtable (SRR) & the Planetary & Terrestrial Mining Sciences Symposium (PTMSS) are due on March 22nd.

You can send abstracts directly to Angel Abbud-Madrid ([email protected]). Detailed information on abstract preparation, registration, student scholarships, sponsorship opportunities, and other logistical material can be found in the conference website:
