Space Resources Roundtable XXIV



Proceedings of SRR XXIV
The Space Resources Roundtable


 








The twenty-fourth meeting of the Space Resources Roundtable in collaboration with the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) and sponsored by Lunar Outpost, Honeybee Robotics, Advanced Space, CisLunar Industries, Karman+, Polimak, Space Robotics Research Group at University of Luxembourg, European Space Resources Innovation Centre (ESRIC), Space Resource Technologies, ispace-US, Interlune, Technogenia, and Lunasonde was held at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) in Golden, Colorado on June 4-7, 2024.

Started in 1999, this was the 24th SRR conference, with a record attendance of 258 participants, 62 oral presentations, 48 posters, a keynote speaker, 3 technical panels, 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.
