§ 10.2 Collections of Technical Papers
The following are selected technical publications with a diverse mix of authors, institutions and multidisciplinary topics related to asteroidal and lunar materials utilization.
If you click on any of the first few conference proceedings below, you will get an introduction to the conferences and can see the tables of contents of the published proceedings. Papers coming from these publications are cited often in the PERMANENT pages.
Bi-Annual Engineering, Construction and Operations in Space, a series of conference proceedings.
Bi-Annual SSI Princeton Conferences on Space Manufacturing, a series of conference proceedings.
Resources of Near-Earth Space, a special collection of 23 scientific papers totalling 650 pages on lunar and asteroidal materials utilization (plus an additional 300 pages for Mars), edited by John S. Lewis, Mildred S. Matthews, and Mary L. Guerrieri, published by The University of Arizona Press (Tucson & London), 1993, ISBN 0-8165-1404-6. In all, 86 collaborating authors put together this volume.
The Second Conference on Lunar Bases and Space Activities of the 21st Century, edited by W. W. Mendell, published by the Lunar and Planetary Institute, Houston, Texas, 1992. NASA CP-3166. I've got this one on microfiche now, so coverage of its papers will be integrated into the website soon.
Lunar Bases and Space Activities of the 21st Century, published by the Lunar and Planetary Institute, Houston, Texas, 1985. Around 1000 pages. Unfortunately, this book is locked away in storage on the other side of the planet and I've lost my references database file on it. Can someone provide us this information?

This website has a lot of text content, so here are some suggestions on how to navigate and also recognize pages you're seen already vs. still unseen pages in the SiteMap.
There are 2 ways to browse this website:
- The SiteMap page.
The pulldown menu and the SiteMap are the same tree of pages and links. The pulldown menu offers + and - for expand and collapse sections/subsections/sub-subsections... of the tree, sometimes multiple levels, whereas the SiteMap has everything expanded with no + or - expand and collapse options so the SiteMap is much longer, compared to the pulldown menu if not fully expanded. You may just choose which of the two formats you prefer at a particular time.
The SiteMap colors links red which you have already visited, vs. normal blue for still unseen. It is convenient to browse the SiteMap in one tab or window, and opening pages in other tabs/windows (Ctrl-click or right-click), such as browsing the whole SiteMap to skip pages you've already seen and to choose to open pages you haven't read yet.
The pulldown menu doesn't change the color of seen pages, unfortunately, unlike the SiteMap. However, using the pulldown menu, you can quickly browse the list of sections and other pages without leaving the page you're on. The SiteMap is a separate page of its own.
