The identification and utilisation of space resources is fast becoming a reality, driven by a revolution in space technology, accelerating exploration of outer space and the eventual scarcity of certain resources on Earth. Building on its long history at the forefront of the commercial satellite communications industry, Luxembourg aims to play a leading role in the exploration and utilization of these resources.
Building on the success of ASIME 2016, the University of Luxembourg, the Ministry of the Economy, the Luxembourg National Research Fund, the Luxembourg Institute for Science and Technology, and Europlanet have come together to support ASIME 2018.
ASIME 2018 will focus on the topic of asteroid composition. In particular, contributions that address the following questions are encouraged:
What do we know about asteroid composition from remote-sensing observations?
What are the potential caveats in the interpretation of composition from Earth-based spectral observations?
What developments are required to improve our knowledge of asteroid composition using ground-based and space-based observations and asteroid rendez-vous and sample return missions?
How can this knowledge be used by industry to recover or use the resources?
Registration is limited to 50 registrants. Pleaser register before 2 April 2018.
Abstracts' deadline: 9 March 2018. Please send a word version of the abstract to Prof. Tonie van Dam
