Space mining holds a huge potential to revolutionize space segment and its related applications.

Our current space segment revolves around space-based observations and providing communication relay links for data transfer.

Space mining holds the potential to move beyond traditional space segment orbit and be part of basic human utilities. In-terms of revenue it will be worth trillions and quadrillions, and the potential employability (engineering and non-engineering).

Topics covered will include minerals and resources found in Near Earth Asteroids, the technological potential for Space Mining, new start-ups, ventures and investments in the industry and the possibilities of space mining in the near future.
