Lunar Mining Machine #1 operations: -excavate 40 tonnes of lunar soil in under 30 days -powderize soil in an ultrasonic rock crusher -extract pure aluminum in a chemical reactor -stockpile pellets of pure aluminum Initial calculations indicate that 40 tonnes of lunar soil would yield 1 tonne of pure aluminum. The intent of this project is to create a working machine. The Lunar Mining Machine will be created using modern 3D CAD software, built and space qualified by the Canadian Space Agency's anecoic thermal vacuum chamber facility. Endurance & efficiency testing will then take place using vacuum settled regolith simulant. Thermal cycle vulnerability testing will be used to test the temperature stabilization mechanism. The Lunar Mining Machine will comply with the standards set out in the Outer Space Treaty (1967) and the Moon Agreement (1974) to be internationally regulated, to prevent undue contamination/disruption of the lunar environment, to promote world peace & cooperation, and to facilitate human exploration of space.
