The mining industry is heading to the stars.

No really, Houston based spacecraft development company Deep Space Industries has partnered with the Luxembourg Government to create and develop technology that will build a resource economy in space.

Here at Fircroft we enjoy finding out more about the most ambitious, pioneering engineering projects on the horizon, and what could be more ambitious than mining in outer space?!

So we’ve taken a closer look at the potential that outer space holds for mining gains.

What resources are out there in the depths of space to be gained? How much would it all cost? How much money could be made from mining asteroids? These questions, and many more, are answered in our infographic below.
