This is the idea of \u200b\u200bthe Origin Space company. The Chinese intend to send the first mining vehicle into space in November this year. NEO-1 will have various technologies developed by Chinese engineers to help quickly and efficiently extract raw materials from space rocks. Thanks to NEO-1, engineers will create the most simulated conditions possible, thanks to which they will be able to obtain valuable data on the control of mining vehicles, the moment of interception of the celestial body, vehicle landing, searching for resources and starting the exploration of the asteroid.

All participants took part in extensive and detailed interviews, enabling the researchers to gather the demographic and behavioral data they needed.
