Space mining start-up Planetary Resources has put together quite the infographic to explain how asteroid mining will create a trillion-dollar industry.

The company says there are over 1,500 asteroids as easy to get to as the surface of the Moon. They are also in Earth-like orbits with small gravity fields, which make them easier to approach and depart.

Doku: Die Wannseekonferenz 1942 (Bayerischer Rundfunk, 1984)

Diese Doku ist nach meiner Meinung nur für stabile Personen über 16 Jahren geeignet.
