Solar System Resources Corporation Sp. z o. o. is a technology startup dealing with the subject of space mining and energy transformation. We strive for a green transformation of the mining industry through the use of space resources. The company designs technologies for the needs of future deep space missions, in particular the exploration and exploration of the Moon's resources, developing unique technological and business solutions enabling the construction of transport and mining infrastructure on the lunar surface. It has competences in the field of space technologies, robotics, automation, and technological scouting. As a registered space mining lobbyist, the company successfully lobbied for Poland's accession to the international NASA Artemis Accords agreement. The company operates on the Polish and American market as USN Solar Sky Mining LLC (usnsolarskymining.com) - joint venture company of US Nuclear Corp. & Solar System Resources Corporation Sp. z o. o.
Over 80 times cost reduction
of the launch of the rocket into Low Earth Orbit (LEO) since 1980. Once Starship is established, 50 further cost reductions are expected. This is as if a $ 320k luxury car got cheaper to $ 8k and then $ 160. The door to space has been opened.
Currently, not only the richest government agencies of the largest economic powers can operate in space. Today even students launch their devices into space. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of space companies in the world. This new era of exploration has been named by NASA as Space 2.0 and by ESA as Space 4.0.
366 B$/y space sector
The current value of the space sector is $ 366 billion per year (2019
data), of which $ 271 billion is the satellite technology market. The space
sector is dynamically developing and accelerating more and more. The completion
of the mega satellite constellation, the Starship vehicle, the NASA Artemis
program and space mining will greatly accelerate this growth.
600 M tons of ice in 40 craters
A NASA radar aboard India's Chandrayaan-I lunar orbiter found 40
craters, ranging in size from 1 to 9 miles across, with pockets of ice.
Scientists estimate at least 600 million tons of ice could be entombed in these
crater, and other higher-end estimates say one billion metric tons is a
1/3 annual GDP of all mankind
The platinum group metals that are needed for the development of modern
technology (specialist metal alloys, electronics, etc.) are running out of
shortages on Earth. These resources are abundant in space - they are found on
the Moon, Mars and asteroids. Some asteroids are large in size. The value of
one of such giants was estimated at 1/3 of the annual GDP of all mankind. Small
asteroids can also be very valuable. For example, the price of 1 ton of
platinum is $ 27 M (the price at the end of Q3 2020).
100 B$ per one person on Earth
In 2018, on one of NASA's subpages, there was a sensational information
that there may be space resources worth 100 billion dollars per one person on
Earth. No one really knows how much raw material is in space, so NASA quickly
withdrew this information. Even if the estimate is incorrect by several orders
of value, these are still unimaginable amounts and sums of money.
Up to 1,8 M space mining workers
Until 2040, from 845,000 to 1.8 million will be working full-time in
mining - the report of the Luxembourg Space Agency ("Opportunities for
space resources utilization future markets & value chains" - chapter
Basic technology available
The technology needed for the exploration of the Moon and Mars exploration and colonization was already available in the 1970s. Most
of the solutions used in space mining will be based on those known from
terrestrial mining. Improvements will be in materials, electronics (demanding
space environment), and especially in robotics and system autonomy. The devices
will be improved in terms of reliability, operational and economic efficiency.
The Americans are returning to
the moon, this time permanently, and we are with them. The NASA Artemis program
assumes the construction of a permanent base on the Moon and its commercial
exploration. SOLAR SYSTEM RESOURCES CORPORATION intends to cooperate in this
Why the Moon? Water in the ice sheets that can be turned into rocket fuel - market value of $ 15 billion / year, and the market value for the next 30 years is estimated at $ 200 billion (WGM report). In regolith, you can find valuable raw materials (platinum metals, which are running out on Earth, and gold). There are also impact craters where we expect an increased concentration of these valuable raw materials. There is also Hel-3, which is called the fuel of the future, the hope of fusion energy.
The value of the lunar deposits has been estimated at $ 13 quadrillion, although we believe this is underestimated. China is considering creating an Earth-Moon Economic Zone, expected to generate $ 10 trillion / year by 2050. Plus, the Moon is not far from Earth and many operations are easier to supervise from Earth. Therefore, in the first years, the Moon will be our core space business.
scientists have been predicting that there may be an island of stability
allowing the existence of stable isotopes with an atomic number Z = 164 (164
protons in the nucleus, for example uranium has only 92 protons). Recent
reports suggest that some asteroids may contain superheavy elements:
The heaviest known element Osmium (Z = 76, 76 protons in the nucleus) has a density of 22.5 to 22.6 g/cm³. While conducting literature studies, we found asteroids with anomalously high density (e.g. 33 Polyhymnia - density 75.28 g/cm³; Ludmilla 73.9 g/cm³; Atala 47.92 g/cm³; De Sitter 450 g/cm³). Of course, this may be a measurement error, which is why we also plan to cooperate with astronomers.
The chance of analyzing in a reasonable time what is inside the asteroid (which can be up to several kilometers in diameter) and distant from Earth is almost zero. However, some of these asteroids may have crashed onto the moon's surface, exposing the contents inside.
Our company wants to launch a project to search for element 164 based on scientific methods. We want to gather a team of physicists to model the properties of element 164, including its spectroscopic lines, which will give us information on how to search for it, and then organize space missions to search for it on the Moon.
