Space Resources Roundtable XXIII



Proceedings of SRR XXIII
The Space Resources Roundtable


 








The twenty-third meeting of the Space Resources Roundtable in collaboration with the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) and sponsored by Lunar Outpost, Advanced Space, Honeybee Robotics, the European Space Resources Innovation Centre (ESRIC), Polimak, Karman+, Technogenia, NeuroSpace, and OuterSpace IP was held at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) in Golden, Colorado on June 6-9, 2023.

Started in 1999, this was the 23rd SRR conference, with a record attendance of 248 participants, 75 oral presentations, 32 posters, 2 keynote speakers, and 4 roundtable discussions. Topics included cislunar, lunar, Martian, and small bodies ISRU activities, as well as current and manifested space-resources related missions, the latest economic models, business initiatives, legal and policy contributions, international participation, and private sector involvement in this field.



Abstracts, Presentations, and Posters made available from the SRR conference may be viewed through the download links provided here.
