WORKING TOGETHER TO ADVANCE SPACE DEVELOPMENT



MACHINING & METALLURGY WORKING GROUP (MMWG)


ABOUT:
The Machining & Metallurgy Working Group (MMWG) seeks to describe and illustrate how local resources could be used to produce metals and metal parts in order to make an expanding base / settlement increasingly Earth independent.


OBJECTIVES:
   - Update the Machining and Metallurgy page.
   - Determine the metals and alloys would be needed.
   - Determine where and how such metals could be extracted and purified.
   - Determine the specific processes involved in metallurgy and machining with an emphasis at the Initial Crew and ILEP phases.
   - Help design a MetalHab (if not outdoors) and MachineHab.
   - Work with the UniHab WG to identify a list of parts that could be produced from local resources.
   - Write up articles in the popular space press (e.g. The Space Review) on the topic.
   - Write up more formal (e.g. scientific) papers on the topic.
