Space Mining and Manufacturing: Off-World Resources and Revolutionary Engineering Techniques 

Space Mining and Manufacturing: Off-World Resources and Revolutionary Engineering Techniques pdf

Book Description:

This book produces convincing evidence that exploiting the potential of space could help solve many environmental and social issues affecting our planet, such as pollution, overcrowding, resource depletion and conflicts, economic inequality, social unrest, economic instability, and unemployment. It also touches on the legal problems encountered with implementing the new technologies, new laws that will need to be enacted, and new organizations that will need to be formed to deal with these changes.

This proposition for a space economy is not science fiction but well within the remit of current or under-development technologies. Numerous technologies are described and put together to form a coherent and feasible road map that, if implemented, could lead humankind toward a brighter future.
