This project centered on the use of robots to conduct mining in space, specifically on the lunar surface. It examined proposed work, including the construction of a lunar base. The project investigated legal, financial and ethical concerns raised by considering such endeavors. It aims to forecast the future of space mining by gathering and analyzing information from interviews and a survey. The project concludes that the public would support robotic space mining if it were a viable source of revenue.
