Past Space Resource Papers

These old papers and abstracts came up in conversation, and I thought I’d surface them here from Google Scholar for easy blog reference.

The contents are decades old, but lunar matters are much the same. The major difference these days is that the ‘non-renewable resource’ of scientific ignorance has diminished a bit.

So we’ve got that going for us, which is nice.

This list is in chronological order, and nowhere near complete. Three full lunar/asteroidal development papers for the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society seem to be tucked elsewhere, and there is a ridiculously extensive collection of presentations made through the years that are very slightly bending a shelf to my right.

If you’d like copies, just ask over a coffee or pint.
