Company Wants to Mine Asteroids: Hopefully the Reapers Won’t Detect Us

by Lambert Varias

A company called Planetary Resources has made itself known, stating that they want to mine asteroids for natural resources. This of course raises a few questions: how exactly will they accomplish this task? What are the risks involved in space mining? Will it have any harmful effects? And most importantly, why is the company not called Asteroidal Resources?

Unfortunately, I don’t have an answer to any of those questions. But the company’s introductory video does vaguely indicate the steps that Planetary Resources is planning to take to achieve their plan and the benefits of mining asteroids. Not that we’ll understand if it explained everything in detail. I bet it’s a bit more complicated than pressing L2 to scan and then R2 to launch a probe.

It does seem to make sense to mine asteroids. Unless of course someone out there is using them. In which case… we’ll still mine them if we can get away with it. That’s what humans do! If we’re caught, let’s just say we’re increasing our galactic readiness. Watch Armageddon Check out Planetary Resources’ website for more information.
