This is a dumb plan. Im all for getting more resources from space but gold and platnum? The world uses those as currency! Hasnt anyone heard of inflation? Immagine that but world wide leaving every country that doesnt harvest materials from asteroids flat broke. Also, the work conditions could be worse than those in labor camps because who could stop it?
Not a good idea. Not a good idea.

T-Rex: "I have a plan... we're running out of resources. Why don't we get a big asteroid and steer it towards us. We'll harvest the bounty at the Yucatan Peninsula."

Water is the bigger prize here. With water you can make liquid hydrogen and oxygen in space...fuel and breathable atmosphere created from asteroids.

Pretty incredible.

Never mind that we don't feed the starving of the world, don't stop fighting each other, allow our elected ones to bend us over...let's plough our billions into collecting water off a space rock.


They want to collect everything they can including minerals and fossil fuels so you look pretty petty trying to twist it to sound more in line with your point of view. Someone tries to find a way to solve one problem and all you can say for yourself is how bad they are for not solving other problems? At least they are trying something. Just when is the last time you did something amazing or great that potentially helps millions of people in ANY way. You're pathetic.

Saw this on the news while at the hospital after a car wreck. Everyone in the lobby started laughing and making fun. It was so disheartening to see how narrow-minded the animals around me are. Even if they fail at least they are trying and at least they will learn. You don't make progress by sitting with your thumb up your ass. I wish them the best of luck and hope they make all the retards to simple to dream big look like the pathetic apes they are.

I read an article about this becoming an inevitability over a year ago, though most of the experts cited stated that at best this is something that won't be accomplished for at least another 20-30 years with the most liberal estimates. The most conservative estimates quoted 50+ years.

Don't worry though, that planet cracker is only a problem if they find a Marker.

There is only one way that raiding asteroids for buried minerals and stuff is going to work: Squirrels in Space. You heard it here first. =^.^=

The GOP said Obama killed NASA, killed space exploration (even though it was Bush that but NASA year after year) and Obama said that private companies would take over the role and go even further...

Looks like Obama was right on the money.

Current costs to launch a mission to mine approx $26000 worth of materials from an asteroid..... $2 billion.

"Hell Yeah! The future is right here. But... who owns the asteroids? "

Nobody does. If nobody owns it and the UN hasn't declared it to be un-ownable, then anybody can mine that poo. I don't think anybody will have much competition for mining an asteroid, especially considering how many there are and how few people will be able to mine them.

I'd hate to see how long an environmental assessment of mining an asteroid would take...
