Deep Space Industries partners with Luxembourg to test asteroid mining technologies
Deep Space Industries, the asteroid mining company, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Luxembourg Government to co-fund the development and launch of DSI’s first spacecraft. Known as Prospector-X, the small spacecraft will test key technologies in Low Earth Orbit that will be necessary for future asteroid prospecting.
The agreement is a small, but important step toward developing the technologies necessary to enable the potentially very lucrative business of asteroid mining.
