With the recent announcement by NASA of the Artemis Accords and the White House Executive Order on space resource utilization, we wanted interview someone from the commercial space sector.

In this weeks SpaceQ podcast we interview Jeff Plate, CEO of Interstellar Mining. Mr. Plate is also Vice President, Marketing and Business Development at WGM, an independent Canadian firm of geological and mining consultants.

It should be noted when the Vancouver Workshop Group submitted their group letter to the Minister of Foreign Affairs François-Philippe Champagne on the White House Executive Order on space resource utilization, Interstellar Mining also wanted to be on the record, so they sent their own letter. That letter is available below.
