Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy
The identification and utilization of space resources is fast becoming a reality, driven by a revolution in space technology, accelerating exploration of outer space and the eventual scarcity of certain resources on Earth. Building on its long history at the forefront of the commercial satellite communications industry, Luxembourg aims to play a leading role in the exploration and utilization of these resources.
Its goal is to ensure that space resources explored under its jurisdiction serve a peaceful purpose, are gathered and used in a sustainable manner compatible with international law and for the benefit of humankind. Luxembourg’s vision is built on support for advanced research activities and technological capabilities, drawing on the country’s existing expertise in the space sector and its ongoing strategy of economic diversification into future-oriented high-tech industries.
Space for Humanity
Space for Humanity will mean different things to different people. For us, it means leveraging the power of space to improve humanity for our world by providing an experience that will expand an individual’s perspective on what it means to be a human on mother earth. Through group experience, and through a diverse selection process, we hope to do our small part to help take our species forward into a brighter future.
The same systems that are deployed on Earth will be used with little modification in space, on the Moon, Mars and asteroids applying extensive machine learning to these new environments. This industrial robotic workforce will create settlements, power facilities, propellants, farms and all the other pieces necessary for human expansion into the solar system and beyond. A set of interface and catalog standards will be released for companies and universities to integrate their tools and subsystems to create a solar system toolkit catalogue, enabling the growth of hundreds of prospecting, mining and operations companies in a thriving CisLunar Marketplace within a decade.
Our highly skilled technical staff focuses on ensuring the success of every mission and on developing effective, innovative, and economic space-related hardware and software. Our insight and involvement in space programs have significantly reduced the risk of launch failure and increased satellite endurance and performance. Due to our expertise, Air Force space mission successes have been unmatched by any other space program.
Aerospace is headquartered in El Segundo, California, with other locations throughout the U.S. Aerospace employs approximately 3,500 people.
