Michael’s opinion: MdP will check if Germany industry and private German companies are using the opportunities in the field of asteroid mining. So stay tuned…:)
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.
