Asteroid Mining Corporation is the UK's only Space Mining business. AMC is attempting to raise £230,000 to fund the payload development of the Asteroid Prospecting Satellite One. APS1 will aim to spectrally identify the composition of 5,000 Near Earth Asteroids to identify Platinum Group deposits to mine.
Asteroid Mining Corporation is crowdfunding the development of the Asteroid Prospecting Satellite One (APS1).
We aim to design the Satellite with the ability to scan 5,000 Near Earth Asteroids from Low Earth Orbit for the purpose of ascertaining the composition and value of these asteroids. There are thousands of NEA's that lie just beyond the Earth which could contain valuable resources.
The APS1 satellite will collect this compositional data and relay it back to earth.
This data will then be compiled and sold to companies that will be interested in assessing the commercial feasibility of space mining. We will also strive to sell this data to governments, academics and other target markets.
We believe as the realisation of asteroid mining’s immense profit potential requires accurate data of individual asteroid’s composition, this data itself will be immensely valuable.
We also intend to mine asteroids ourselves in the near future using proceeds from the selling of this data.
Asteroid Mining Corporation has already attracted significant global interest: with conference appearances in the US, interviews in Russian Newspapers, and multiple media appearances on BBC News and in UK Newspapers under our belt. If you search for Asteroid Mining on Google: AMC is among the first listings.
