Abstract

The aim of the Asteroid Science Intersections with In-­Space Mine Engineering (ASIME) 2016 conference on September 21-­‐22, 2016 in Luxembourg City was
to provide an environment for the detailed discussion of the specific properties of asteroids, with the engineering needs of space missions that utilize asteroids.
The ASIME 2016 Conference produced a layered record of discussions from the
asteroid scientists and the asteroid miners to understand each other’s key concerns and to address key scientific questions from the asteroid mining companies: Planetary Resources, Deep Space Industries and TransAstra. These Questions were the focus of the two day conference, were addressed by
scientists inside and outside of the ASIME Conference and are the focus of
this White Paper.
The Questions from the asteroid mining companies have been sorted into the three asteroid science themes: 1) survey, 2) surface and 3) subsurface and 4)
Other. The answers to those Questions have been provided by the scientists with their conference presentations or edited directly into an early open-­‐access collaborative Google document (August 2016-­‐October 2016), or inserted by
A. Graps using additional reference materials. During the ASIME 2016 last two-­‐hours, the scientists turned the Questions from the Asteroid Miners around by presenting their own key concerns: Questions from the Asteroid Scientists. These answers in this White Paper will point to the Science Knowledge Gaps (SKGs) for advancing the asteroid in-­‐space resource utilisation domain.
