Q and A about Investing in Space Resources and Asteroid Mining

Space Resources is building a list of interested investors and target investments in the fields of space resources and asteroid mining. Common questions we receive are, what are the:

The growing Crowdfunding for Space Startups scene and consolidation of strategic space investment knowledge is opening up Space 2.0, NewSpace, and Space Commerce.
Investing in the space resources industry is akin to in the 15th Century funding an exploration from the Old World into the New World.
Continuing to this very day, most of our modern history had its origins in one of the most revolutionary trading periods.
The next trade revolution will not be cross-continental, it will be be between planets and asteroids.

Soon you can invest in a Mars Colony, including the space proofed infrastruture and interplanetary transport to make it possible.
Right now, you can invest in space resources, and there are space companies developing Space Resources technology thanks to Asteroid Mining CrowdFunding and various international specialists in space investing.

Space Resources – Be Part of a Trillion Dollar Market

New Frontiers. New Technology. A New Market.

Now it is possible for private investors in space resources via a crowdfund; FinTech and CrowdFunding have merged to help shape Space 2.0.

Space Resources is broadly defined as using the resources from space, including:

  • Asteroid mining, also known as asteroid harvesting. Read about how the Next Gold Rush will be Asteroids.
  • Mining the Moon, also known as Lunar Mining or Lunar Resources).
  • Generating Energy from space, e.g. via massive orbital solar arrays, or extracting Helium 3 from the Lunar surface to be used in a new generation of reactors on earth.
  • Locating and Extracting Space Resources will become a viable industry sooner rather than later because the demand for precious metals, energy and space related commerce and research is increasing, the cost to participate is decreasing, and finding the right resources on earth becomes a side-issue when the same resources can be sourced from space.

How Can We Value Space Resources?

There’s two main markets for resources from space.

  1. On Earth. Some materials are getting harder to obtain and are expensive, in terms of exploration, location and extraction, but also for environmental reasons. An easy example is that gold comes from space, and other precious metals too.
  2. In Space. Water, energy and materials are already available in space, and can be used to further the spread of humanity into space without having to extract, refine and launch them from earth.

The Business Case for Space Resources

In general, the cost benefit of operating space resources related business is becoming more and more obvious as the cost of entry into space decreases:

  • Due to lower launch costs; partly thanks to SpaceX’s ambitious introduction of re-usable rockets and numerous other lower-cost sub-orbital and orbital launch providers.
  • The miniaturization of technology; think of the power of a Smartphone compared to a desktop computer from two decades ago,
  • Advanced software and their applications in space,
  • New propulsion technology; from light sails to micro-thrusters for Cubesats, and
  • the evolution of technology like zero-G 3D printing machines, make what you can from space resources.

In essence, space entrepreneurs can launch more sophisticated hardware and software at an ever decreasing cost, meaning the barrier to entry for space resources companies is becoming lower and lower.

The Historical Context of Space Resources

By stepping back in history, way back from the recent digital revolution, then back further through the cold war and two world wars of last century, and all the way back to the 15th Century, you will find European Empires competing to explore the New World. What happened then shaped the geo-politics of our times. Attracting the Old World Empires to uncover the unknown world was the need for the exploration of new territories to create new trade opportunities.
A crowded Earth will look to Off-World Territories to create new trade opportunities. Upcoming space commerce businesses are based on:
A. Investing in asteroid mining, funding missions to extract space resources, forming syndicates to invest in space companies exploring for valuable commodities.
B. Building and operating missions to extract energy and precious metals from asteroids and the moon.
C. Returning or transporting energy and precious metals to the earth or customers in the solar system.

Space resources investors will be the enabler for the next phase of discovery, exploration, and new opportunities – a trillion dollar market.
