From Private Space Telescopes to Asteroid Mining and Manufacturing
SpaceFab.US is building a privately funded open access reflector telescope satellite that anyone can use to photograph the Earth or to photograph stars and galaxies. We will leverage that satellite technology to build asteroid mining and manufacturing satellites. We'll describe our space telescope design, as well as our business and technical plans for metal asteroid mining and exponential space manufacturing.
