Public/Private Human Access to Space - Vol. 2 - Earth Orbit and beyond

B049
Public/Private Human Access to Space - Vol. 2 - Earth Orbit and beyond, Published in January 2018, 88 pages. Soft cover. The chartered theme of the cosmic study group is “Public/Private Human Access to Space,” informally referred to in this report as the “Human Orbital Market” or the “HOM” cosmic study group. The goal of the HOM cosmic study is to estimate the emergence of HOMs for different countries or regions around the world. This cosmic study employs a five-phase approach that incorporates multiple research methods.

Space Mineral Resources – A Global Assessment of the Challenges and Opportunities

B045
Space Mineral Resources – A Global Assessment of the Challenges and Opportunities, published in 2015, 392 pages. The exploitation of space mineral resources is becoming a commercial space endeavor for the benefit of humanity and profit. In 2012, the IAA approved a broad study of the technology, economics, legal and policy aspects of identifying, obtaining, and using these resources. In 2013 and 2014, multiple commercial ventures announced their intensions to initiate human (and robotic) missions to the Moon, Mars and asteroids.

The Energetic Particle Radiation Hazard en route to and at Mars

B042
The Energetic Particle Radiation Hazard en route to and at Mars, published in March 2017, 403 pages. We understand today that the potential health hazard posed to crews in deep space due to energetic particle radiation is a matter of even greater complexity than was recognized in earlier times. Scientists, Engineers and Biologists worldwide are presently investigating, in many interdisciplinary communities the problems concerned using new avenues of approach, backed up by powerful diagnostic tools, in an attempt to find a viable solution.
