Space Manufacturing 14 Proceedings Now Online

SSI is pleased to announce the publication of papers from the 14th Space Manufacturing Conference. Thirteen papers from the conference at the NASA Ames Research Center are now available for download at no cost. They cover a broad range of key areas including space transportation, closed environment life support systems, in-situ resource utilization, space solar power, and emerging technologies such as 3-D printing.

To economize, we have decided to make these papers available for free download rather than producing a printed volume. As was done for the 1st and 2nd conferences, SSI will combine these papers with those from the future (15th) Space Manufacturing Conference into one volume for purchase. We are working on plans for the 15th Conference at this time and will announce venue and dates shortly. In the interim, this approach will guarantee the widest possible distribution.

Please see this page to download papers from Proceedings of Space Manufacturing 14.

SSI relies upon your support to continue our important work in pushing back the frontiers of space. Membership starts at only $50 annually ($25 for students). You can also become a Senior Associate with a five-year membership pledge of $100 per year.

  1. Hi,
    hope you are well.Did see a picture of a meteor in the
    Calgary Sun newspaper,Jan.23/2013,by Jonathan Alcorn of
    the Reuters company.Location given was,Museum of Flying ,
    Santa Monica,California.The caption said Deep Space Indus-
    tries announces plans for the world’s first fleet of
    commercial asteroid prospecting spacecraft.
    Went to the
    Deep Space website and low and behold was a link to the
    Space Studies Institute ,very exciting !!!!!!!! Didn’t
    think I’d live long enough to see the start of REAL Space Development that will actually lead to the construction
    of O’Neill Space Colonies.Last year was rough,eight operations,am still here,for how long?,who knows?
    Would like to know when is Space Studies Institue going to get
    on the Stock Market and start selling Common Shares ???
    Sure would be good if SSI could publish a monthly
    magazine about Space Habitats, where they will be,and some form of timelime that gives an idea generally of
    is going to happen in the near future concerning O’Neill
    Space Colonies.
    Keep up the good work !!! Take Care,
    Bye For Now.
    Sincerely ,John Hadden
