Planetoid Mines mission is to engineer and manufacture the latest aerospace propulsion technology and attach it to an asteroid capturing platform to redirect the asteroid back to Earth’s cislunar orbit for the extraction of raw materials used in the manufacturing of spaceports and spacecraft.

Planetoid Mines' primary focus is developing the core components of asteroid mining. Many of their instruments and tools will be compatible with mining applications on the lunar surface and on Earth. Planetoid Mines intends to have their first lunar prospecting rover ready to launch and land near the lunar south pole in 2022. They are developing their own powered descent and landing vehicle and have not yet announced a launch provider.
