Space mining is a technically and scientifically complex issue that is also socially controversial.  

I’m Pascal Koch and I’m a young geoscientist (B.Sc.) from Kiel, Germany. On this website I would like to discuss the possibility of raw material exploration on asteroids. I will deal with the already existing remote sensing methods and satellite-based methods. The interesting objects – asteroids – are also covered in a separate chapter of this website.


I am currently working on an industrial asteroid exploration satellite and the procedure for operating it. The geophysical methods I learned in my studies are being applied in this device and process. As I would like to check the possibility of patenting first, I unfortunately cannot publish any information about the device on this website. Even if I can't publish everything, it's worth reading the articles presented.
