Event description

Description

Sydney Space Festival


As new markets emerge in commercial launch, space tourism and low-cost space platforms, it is becoming increasingly attractive to use resources “in-situ”, i.e. to extract resources locally from asteroids, the moon or Mars. This opens up a wide range of opportunities for researchers, developers and investors.

Running in the week prior to this year's IAC in Adelaide, OEMF2017 will host speakers on a broad spectrum of issues: missions, resources, mining technologies, robotics, automation, instrumentation, legal impediments, business risks, and ethical considerations. We welcome delegates involved in domestic and international research, as well as interested parties from industry, government and the public.

Speakers include:

• Rob Mueller, NASA Kennedy Space Centre Swamp Works
• Bob Anderson, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
• Pamela Melroy, retired NASA Astronaut and former Deputy Director of the Tactical Technology Office at DARPA
• Laurent Sibille, NASA Kennedy Space Center
• Piero Messina, European Space Agency
• Michael Simpson, Hague Space Resources Governance Working Group
• Marc Serres, Head of Space Affairs, Government of Luxembourg
• Ben Baseley-Walker, Planetary Resources
• Melissa Sampson, United Launch Alliance
• Kyle Acierno, ispace Europe, S.A.
• Ömer Aydan, University of the Ryukyus

• Fabio Tronchetti, Chinese Institute of Astronautics Engineering Development Strategies
• Mark Sonter, Asteroid Enterprises Pty Ltd
• Andy Mulholland, Dassault Systemes
• Jim Keravala, OffWorld Consortium
• Kris Zacny, Honeybee Robotics
• Steven Freeland, Western Sydney University
• Alice Gorman, Flinders University, Australia
• Jon Clarke, Mars Society Australia
• Sydney Do, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
• David Dixon, NASA Kennedy Space Centre

plus a wide range of international graduate researchers.

Chaired by Prof Andrew Demspter (ACSER UNSW) and A/Prof Serkan Saydam (UNSW Mining Engineering)

This is the third time UNSW Sydney has hosted the Off Earth Mining Forum. The first Off-Earth Mining Forum, at UNSW’s Kensington campus was held in February 2013 and was an extraordinary event. Media coverage had a reach of over 8 million people across the world, with radio coverage in the UK and US, newspaper coverage in India and New Zealand and coverage by all Australian television networks. The second Off-Earth Mining Forum was held in November 2015 in conjunction with the third International Future Mining Conference and engaged a new subset of industry explorers. In 2017 this research is accepted as fundamental to the establishment of economies in space, and the excitement is only growing.
