Description of this Ebook

The parts of the solar system that are most accessible from Earth (the Moon, the near-Earth asteroids, and Mars and its moons) are rich in materials of great potential value to humanity. Immediate uses of these resources to manufacture propellants, structural metals, refractories, life-support fluids and glass can support future large-scale space activities. In the longterm, non-terrestrial sources of rare materials and energy may be of great importance here on Earth.
