Commercial space advocate Rick Tumlinson, the chairman of Deep Space Industries Inc. and considered to be one of the 100 most influential people in the space industry by Space News, will be speaking at the upcoming Canadian Space Commerce Association (CSCA) National Conference, being held in Toronto, ON on March 7th, 2013.
Tumlinson will provide an overview of this new company, the “FireFly” spacecraft which will perform the search and the 3D printing system (called the “MicroGravity Foundry”) which will use nickel to create “high-density high-strength metal components even in zero gravity.”
As outlined in the January 22nd, 2013 PRWeb press release “Commercial Asteroid Hunters announce plans for new Robotic Exploration Fleet,” Deep Space Industries has announced that it will send a fleet of asteroid-prospecting spacecraft out into the solar system to hunt for resources to accelerate space development to benefit Earth.
