Does the future of mining lie in outer space?

The mining industry is heading to the stars.

No really, Huston based spacecraft development company Deep Space Industries has partnered with the Luxembourg Government to create and develop technology that will build a resource economy in space.

You can read our exclusive interview with Deep Space Industries in the August issue of Mining Global.

Fircroft, the global workforce solutions provider to the technical, engineering sectors, including mining, has put together a snazzy little infographic posing the question that Deep Space Industries, amongst others, are trying to answer – Does the future of mining lie in outer space?

“We feel that space mining will become a very important part of both the mining and space exploration industries in the not too distant future," says Fircroft.

We wanted to look into the possibilities that are causing such a seismic shift within the mining industry and how space mining efforts may dramatically reduce the cost of future space exploration.”
