Brokkr 1 is a 6U CubeSat built by AstroForge with OrbAstro to demonstrate technolgies needed for asteroid mining.
During this mission, AstroForge will demonstrate their refinery capabilities with the goal of validating our technology and performing extractions in zero gravity. The spacecraft will launch pre-loaded with an asteroid-like material that the refinery payload will vaporize and sort into its elemental components.
