Space mining is a technically and scientifically complex issue that is also socially controversial.
I’m Pascal Koch, an undergraduate (B.Sc) from Germany who is currently carrying out private research in the field of space mining. On this website I would like to discuss the possibility of raw material exploration on asteroids.
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.
Please click through and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions.
Today I finished the searching for patents in the field of asteroid resource exploration and mining. This research was the first step in the process of patenting my own exploration satellite. (12.06.2021)
I am currently working on a gravity model for a fictive asteroid. First impressions can be found on this subpage. (13.05.2021)
