Planetary Resources, the company working to mine asteroids for precious metals, has just announced a plan to put everyone in space, virtually, via a new space telescope.
Space mining company Planetary Resources has posted a video that illustrates the asteroid-packed nature of our solar system.
The actual value of mining asteroids is slowly being fully realized by a company called Deep Space Industries (DSI).
You remember that crazy company backed by a whole bunch of not-so-crazy people that plans to go out and mine asteroids for fun and profit, right? It turns out that Planetary Resources is the special kind of crazy that's out to better humanity, and one of the ways it's doing that is by adding CubeSats to its space telescopes.
