"Space Mining The High Frontier" is an upcoming conference taking place on July 28, 2021 (5 pm - 8 pm, BST) in which SpaceTech Analytics business development consultant Rand Simberg and speakers from the space-mining industry will discuss the opportunities presented by the rapidly emerging interest in in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) – as a key part of expanding human presence in space and in generating economic benefit both off planet and terrestrial, from space activities. Speakers will also address the need to conduct space-resource utilization in a sustainable manner to allow healthy growth of the off-world economy.
