Directory:Flight > Directory:Asteroid Capture > NASA Plans To - NASA scientists are planning to capture a 500 ton asteroid, relocate it and turn it into a space station for astronauts to refuel on their way to Mars...within 10-12 years. The technology would also open up the possibility of mining other asteroids for their metals and minerals. (Slashdot December 24, 2012)

Latest: Directory:Flight > Directory:Asteroid Capture > Stott Space: Asteroid Mining Tech is 30 Years Old - The fear of the "oops" misdirection of trying to bring an asteroid into orbit around the Earth to mine it, needs to be superseded by the realization of the benefits of knowing how to steer asteroids to prevent natural(?) collision events.
