Michio Kaku predicts asteroid mining will happen sooner than you think
 
04:14
Good news! We're on the precipice of the next great gold rush... but it won't be in the hills of California. Or anywhere on this planet. It'll be in outer space, as there are untapped rare materials in asteroids that could be used for future technologies. That's right: there's gold in them thar skies! Theoretical physicist and one of our favorite Big Thinkers, Dr. Michio Kaku, explains to us that while China might have a stranglehold on the rare minerals and metals on our planet, there's no stopping interplanetary mining. We've even got an actual plan with actual economics already in place... we just have to wait until NASA's SLS rocket technology fully develops. Michio Kaku's latest book is the awesome The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/michio-kaku-asteroid-mining-will-happen-sooner-than-you-think Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript: When I was researching my book The Future of Humanity I came across a comment made by Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson made the biggest gamble of his life buying the Louisiana Purchase from Napoleon. Napoleon was fighting the British he needed hard cash immediately. He had Louisiana and that whole middle portion of the United States and so Napoleon sold it to Thomas Jefferson for a song. But Thomas Jefferson thought how long would it take to investigate what he had just purchased? He had doubled the size of the USA. Think about that. And he probably violated the Constitution in the process. Everyone forgets that. Everyone glosses over that fact, but hey when Louis and Clark went into the territories that comprised the Louisiana Purchase they found tremendous prospects for wealth and prosperity, but Thomas Jefferson wrote that it may take a thousand years, a thousand years before they could then begin to settle the west. Well, how long did it take? A few decades because what happened? Gold. Gold was discovered in California sparking the gold rush and within just a few years millions of prospectors, settlers, fortune hunters converged on California. It didn’t take a thousand years to develop that. Then the question now is is there going to be a new gold rush in outer space? Some people think so. Some Google billionaires have created an organization, a company, Planetary Resources, that are looking into prospecting in the asteroid belt. Now, asteroids come in all shapes and sizes and we’re cataloging them now and we have already found some perspective asteroids that could be mined. One asteroid perhaps maybe 30/50 feet across brought back down either to the moon or to the planet earth could in fact yield billions of dollars in rewards because of the rare earths and the platinum type medals that you find inside. You see, the electronics industry is dependent upon rare earths. Where are these rare earth elements found it? Mainly in China. They’re everywhere, of course, but China has the most developed market and the Chinese in turn supply on the order of 90 percent of the rare earths. Well, a few years ago they decided to capitalize that and raise the price. All of a sudden shockwaves, shockwaves spread around the earth because people realized that oh my God China has a stranglehold, a stranglehold on high technology. How can you build the next iPhone if you don’t have the rare earths to make the transistors and to make the delicate components of these high tech devices? So I think what’s happening here is that some people see an area for profit and that is asteroid mining. Now of course, the infrastructure for that doesn’t exist, but NASA has looked at its budget and does have a program that has been shelved temporarily to redirect an asteroid. The Asteroid Redirect Program is to send of the SL ass booster rocket into outer space with the Orion capsule. It will then intercept an asteroid and bring it back to orbit around the moon. Then it can be mined as it orbits around the moon or as it’s brought back to planet earth. And so this is now beyond the phase of science fiction. We’re no longer talking about dreaming about an asteroid redirect, we’re talking about an actual plan with the economics, with the details laid out. However, at the present time we have to wait for NASA’s SLS rocket to mature to the point where we can intercept an asteroid.

Asteroid Mining - Planetary Resources
 
07:05
Very soon, Planetary Resources inc. and Deep Space Inustries will be launching prospecting probes to several high-value target asteroids, suspected to contain exhorbidantly high concentrations of platinum, gold, silver, nickel and other precious metals critical to the manufacturing and function of electronics and communications technology. These missions will get up close to and evaluate the precise concentrations of these metals in their target asteroids. And after the results of these missions, they have designs standing by for actual mining probes, ready to be built and sent out to actually begin extracting and returning quantities of these high-value metals to Earth. ---------------------------------------------------- Songs Used : "Faster than Light" by Extan "Infectious" by Tobu "Galaxy" by R&W ---------------------------------------------------- Video footage courtesy of NASA Asteroid excavating vehicle images courtesy of Deep Space Industries and Planetary Resources inc. ----------------------------------------------------

Seg_2 Planetary Resources Aims to Mine Asteroids for Water, Platinum - 03 May 12 - Suvarna News
 
06:22
http://www.suvarnanews.tv - 03 May 2012 - something special - Planetary Resources Aims to Mine Asteroids for Water, Platinum Planetary Resources, the asteroid mining venture backed by director James Cameron and other well-know investors, was officially announced on Tuesday. The company plans to launch exploratory spacecraft within two years and could be extracting valuable materials from near-Earth asteroids a few years after that, according to its founders. "This company is not about paper studies," said Eric Anderson, who co-founded Planetary Resources with fellow commercial spaceflight advocate Peter Diamandis. "It's not about thinking and dreaming about asteroid mining. There's plenty of talking. This is about doing. We'll create robots that go into deep space and mine asteroids. We're not going to talk about it, we're just going to do it." The company will be headquartered in Bellvue, Wash., Anderson said during a press conference held at Seattle's Museum of Flight. Chris Lewicki, president and chief engineer of the asteroid mining firm and formerly NASA's Mars mission manager, said companies like Planetary Resources could help turn Seattle into the "Silicon Valley of Space." Planetary Resources plans to go after water, precious metals like platinum, and other materials found on nearby asteroids in three phases. The first phase will be to launch a series of Earth-orbiting space telescopes to scope out suitable mining targets among what's believed to be millions of near-Earth asteroids measuring 50 meters or greater in size. Arkyd 100 The company has already started developing the spacecraft for the first phase, Anderson said. That line of low-orbit robotic probes has been dubbed the Arkyd-100 Series and will be followed on with future-generation Arkyd spacecraft that will visit likely asteroid candidates for prospecting purposes and eventually to actually mine them for materials theoretically worth billions and even trillions of dollars. With its Arkyd series, Planetary Resources is changing up the traditional model of space exploration, Lewicki said. Instead of pouring a lot of resources into developing and building a single probe like the ones used to explore Mars and conduct other space missions, the company is taking a "swarm" approach to its hunt for asteroids worth excavating. That means launching and guiding dozens or more Arkyd probes to maximize the chances of finding 20 or so asteroids that are close enough to Earth, have solar orbits that keep them near enough to visit, and have the right composition of either water or precious metal to make them worth mining, Lewicki said.

Should We Mine This Asteroid For Platinum
 
04:18
This week an asteroid passed by Earth worth an estimated 5 trillion dollars in platinum. Is it possible to mine precious metals in space? In 2011 asteroid UW158, worth an estimated $5.4 trillion, flew by Earth. In 2013, asteroid 2012 DA14, estimated to be worth around $20 trillion, flew by. How do scientists know what an asteroid is made out of? Once it's been located in space, scientists can use ground-based infrared telescopes and spectrometers to see which minerals exist within it. They can even bounce radar off the asteroids and determine composition by what is reflected back. It's never made of just one thing, it's moving, so there's rarely a scientific consensus, but they do have a general idea. Spectrometry and infrared analysis of UW158 suggested it might contain up to 90 million tons of the ultra-rare metal platinum, thus the high price tag. But getting to it, mining it, and then hauling platinum plus any other valuable minerals or metals back is also extremely expensive. Billionaires like Google's Larry Page and Eric Schmidt, as well as Virgin's Richard Branson all have expressed interest in space exploration and could potentially want to mine astroids like UW158. The problem is sending the materials to mine an asteroid into high Earth orbit costs about 10 million dollars per ton...and the tech for mining space rock is untested, although last week Planetary Resources' Arkyd 3 Reflight spacecraft launched from the International Space Station. The A3R is a proof-of-concept test vehicle for landing and extracting resources from an asteroid. The A6, scheduled to launch later this year, will have tools to spot water, and infrared to find minerals on asteroids.

Seg_3 Planetary Resources Aims to Mine Asteroids for Water, Platinum - 03 May 12 - Suvarna News
 
06:27
http://www.suvarnanews.tv - 03 May 2012 - something special - Planetary Resources Aims to Mine Asteroids for Water, Platinum Planetary Resources, the asteroid mining venture backed by director James Cameron and other well-know investors, was officially announced on Tuesday. The company plans to launch exploratory spacecraft within two years and could be extracting valuable materials from near-Earth asteroids a few years after that, according to its founders. "This company is not about paper studies," said Eric Anderson, who co-founded Planetary Resources with fellow commercial spaceflight advocate Peter Diamandis. "It's not about thinking and dreaming about asteroid mining. There's plenty of talking. This is about doing. We'll create robots that go into deep space and mine asteroids. We're not going to talk about it, we're just going to do it." The company will be headquartered in Bellvue, Wash., Anderson said during a press conference held at Seattle's Museum of Flight. Chris Lewicki, president and chief engineer of the asteroid mining firm and formerly NASA's Mars mission manager, said companies like Planetary Resources could help turn Seattle into the "Silicon Valley of Space." Planetary Resources plans to go after water, precious metals like platinum, and other materials found on nearby asteroids in three phases. The first phase will be to launch a series of Earth-orbiting space telescopes to scope out suitable mining targets among what's believed to be millions of near-Earth asteroids measuring 50 meters or greater in size. Arkyd 100 The company has already started developing the spacecraft for the first phase, Anderson said. That line of low-orbit robotic probes has been dubbed the Arkyd-100 Series and will be followed on with future-generation Arkyd spacecraft that will visit likely asteroid candidates for prospecting purposes and eventually to actually mine them for materials theoretically worth billions and even trillions of dollars. With its Arkyd series, Planetary Resources is changing up the traditional model of space exploration, Lewicki said. Instead of pouring a lot of resources into developing and building a single probe like the ones used to explore Mars and conduct other space missions, the company is taking a "swarm" approach to its hunt for asteroids worth excavating. That means launching and guiding dozens or more Arkyd probes to maximize the chances of finding 20 or so asteroids that are close enough to Earth, have solar orbits that keep them near enough to visit, and have the right composition of either water or precious metal to make them worth mining, Lewicki said.

Asteroid 2011 UW-158, which is thought to contain anywhere from $300 billion to $5.4 trillion worth of platinum and other precious metals and materials, flew by Earth on Sunday, July 19. Scientists who have been observing the asteroid believe that the close proximity of its flight path to Earth has made it a target for future robotic mining missions.

Will We Mine Asteroids?

Geologists are developing more elaborate ways to get at the veins of precious metals beneath the surface of the Earth. And for the truly rare metals, like platinum and iridium, forget about it. All the platinum ever mined in the history of the world would fit inside my basement, and it’s not that big of a basement. There are asteroids out there, just floating past us, taunting us, containing mountains of precious minerals. There are iron-nickel asteroids made entirely of metal. Comets of water, dirt and organic materials, everything you’d need to make an orbital farm. Just a single 30-meter asteroid, like the recently discovered 2012 DA14, is worth $20 trillion dollars. Now, if you could just somehow get to it. Mining here on Earth is hard enough, but actually harvesting material from asteroids in the Solar System sounds almost impossible. But almost impossible, is still possible. With enough ingenuity and a few breakthroughs in spaceflight and robotics, plus some convenient hand waving for the sake of storytelling and there could be a future of asteroid mining ahead of us. If there are mineral rich asteroids that contain a large amount of precious elements, it just might be cost effective to deliver those elements back to Earth. $20 trillion dollars sure would help buy that space elevator you wanted for sci-fi Christmas. If we had Robotic harvesters extract the gold, platinum and iridium off the surface of the space rock and they could send return capsules to Earth. It would make even more sense to keep this stuff in space. Future spacecraft will need rocket fuel, hydrogen and oxygen, conveniently contained in water. If you could mine water ice off a comet or asteroid, you could create fuel depots across the Solar System. Miners could extract and concentrate other materials needed for spaceflight and return them to Earth orbit. There could eventually be an orbiting collection of everything you need to survive in space, all gathered together and conveniently located … in space. You might be surprised to know that getting to a nearby asteroid would require less energy than traveling to the Moon. Asteroids actually make better refueling stations than the Moon, and could serve as a waypoint to the other planets. There are a few companies working to mine asteroids right now. Planetary Resources and Deep Space Industries have both developed plans for robotic missions to find asteroid targets, analyze them up close, and even return samples to Earth for study. Within a few decades, they should have identified some ideal candidate asteroids for mining, and we get on with the work of mining with Solar System to support our further exploration. Perhaps then we’ll become a true spacefaring civilization, or just get conquered by an uprising of our sentient robotic miner drones. So, will this ever happen? Will we eventually mine asteroids to send material back to Earth and support the exploration of space? Who knows. Business and industry are drivers of innovation. If there’s profit to be made, somebody will figure out how to do it. What do you think? Do you envision a future career as an asteroid miner? Can we all be like Bruce Willis?

Moon Asteroid Mining: What It Means for the Economy? SpaceX Falcon Heavy could make it a reality How Asteroid Mining will save Earth? Why we don’t How Valuable is Asteroid Mining? MINING IN SPACE: What It Means for the Economy? The pros, the cons, the challenges, the scope, and the economy! The mining of celestial bodies and the research, as well as the use of space resources, has gone from science fiction to a palpable reality, considering the near-Earth asteroids as candidates for the first mining incursions outside of our planet. There are already initiatives on an international scale that address these future activities seriously and rigorously. President Obama signed the so-called “Space Law,” approved by the US Congress whose latest title allows companies in the country to exploit space mining and the appropriation of asteroids and other “space resources.” The concept of “space mining” began to develop. Its latest title allows companies in the country to exploit space mining and the appropriation of asteroids and other “space resources” by private individuals and companies if they get the technology to move and exploit the bodies rich in minerals such as platinum, gold, iron or water. the rocky bodies that orbit the Earth or accumulate in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. In this video, Engineering Today will discuss about Mining in Space. How valuable is Asteroid Mining? Does Asteroid Mining Will Revolutionize Our Future Economy? Lets get started RACE TOWARDS THE ASTEROIDS There are many companies interested in asteroids such as Deep Space Industries, Orbital Sciences Corporation, Mars One, Bigelow Aerospace, etc. The Blue Origin aerospace company owned by Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, is building a rocket called the New Glenn. The SpaceX firm, founded and run by entrepreneur Elon Musk, founder of Tesla Motors and PayPal, is carrying out cargo missions to the International Space Station with its recyclable Falcon 9 Dragon rocket and has plans for the future beyond the orbit land. It is estimated that some asteroids could contain all. Bernstein's Wall Street research firm says a large asteroid called 16 Psyche There are about 12,000 asteroids that pass each year close to the earth,10% of them than on the Moon. Yet, the fever for the conquest of asteroids is as strong as ever. SPACE FUEL But all the interest that asteroids awaken does not end solely on the economic question. future human settlements on Mars. backup systems in space at a much lower cost than carrying them from Earth. It is also expected that asteroids will help us reach the red planet. A trip to Mars would be much cheaper and more efficient if you could get some of the fuel along the way. And that is where the asteroids and the Moon intervene. The moon fell into our clutches in 1969. ASTEROIDS AND THE MOON, IMMEDIATE OBJECTIVE he Moon presents an abundance of the Helium-3 isotope. In this context, NASA has raised the idea of sharing with American companies. With reasonable budgets, it will be possible to send missions to inhabit the Moon in a decade. It is clear that both the Moon and the asteroids are objects of mining in space and there are several countries and a few companies focused on the exploration and use of extraterrestrial resources. Delving a bit into history, space mining American specialists possibilities of mining on the Moon. SPACE MINING AND THE ECONOMY Could the asteroids become a future source of resources? Some companies are already starting to get on the bandwagon of space mining, opening the door to great possibilities but also immense challenges. There are two things you should know about asteroids The only clear thing, for now, is that it will take decades to know if those who invest today in space mining are visionaries or just crazy. The solar system At least 18,000 of them or the Near-Earth Asteroids (NEAs) approach us less than 1.3 times the distance to the sun. And there are many NEAs left to discover. asteroid 20 meter in diameter. No asteroid detection program saw it coming. Space agencies do not devote more and more resources to watch the sky in vain. But the asteroids, in addition to distrust and scientific curiosity, Chris Lewicki, director of Planetary Resources, one of the companies that have space mining as one of their central objectives even mentioned that in principle, you could do anything with the metals that you extract from the asteroids. As he sees it, the universe is your mining factory. Hence, the economic implications of space mining are immense satellites like the Moon and planets like Mars. space to sustain future life on Earth. we will inhabit the Moon and Mars, we will be hovering other planets of the Solar system, and we will extract the minerals of the asteroids. The first Earthman might even be born on a space base.

Nasa To Mine Asteroids For Precious Metals!
 
01:43
New spacecraft exploring the Solar System for rare-element asteroids to mine, Along with the obvious goal of expanding humanity beyond our own corner of the galaxy, space exploration brings another very practical use — mining for stuff we don't have much of on Earth. The private space firm Planetary Resources, which is funded by tech giants like Larry Page and Richard Branson, has developed a new spacecraft that is essentially tasked with exploring our solar system in search of asteroids we could mine for rare elements. The team launched the Arkyd 3 “prospector” ship just a few weeks ago from the International Space Station (ISS). If the software and tech tests out well, the company will send out the Arkyd 6 by the end of the year to start the search.Considering we already know how to land a spacecraft on a comet, eventual mining missions could definitely be viable in the years to come. It could also help kick-start some economic interest in space travel, which is always a nice catalyst when you’re looking to grow a high cost industry. Along with the search for rare metals such as neodymium and yttrium, the mission will also be scouting out potential water deposits on asteroids.

Why Asteroid Mining?

This video is about asteroid mining https://www.quora.com/If-we-had-better-technology-could-we-use-a-high-powered-light-beam-for-spacecraft-propulsion/answer/William-Mook https://www.researchgate.net/publication/234004781_The_Economic_Impact_of_Off-World_Mining I am working on making mining satellites built around the efficient solar pumped lasers. 1. Orbit a payload and inflate a large concentrator that focuses light on to a set of lasers each operating at high efficiency within their own band of colours. 2, combine the laser energy through a single optical system that focuses the light to very high intensity. 3. On orbit eject foils at very high speed as reaction mass, using the laser energy. This propels the satellite to intercept a passing asteroid. 4. Approach the asteroid, which is spinning, use a gamma ray spectrometer to take images of the asteroid. Gamma ray bursts occur naturally in the cosmos. Materials throughout the cosmos absorb this energy and release secondary gamma rays. Looking at the secondary gamma rays lets us probe deeply into the surface of planets and moons and asteroids - and sees where the rich regions are. In this way a complete map is made as the satellite approaches the asteroid. 5. The satellite takes up an orbit above the richest part of the asteroid, collecting sunlight and beaming it to a lander, which detaches from the satellite, pushed by the laser light, and lands below the orbiting satellite. 6. The lander descends to the asteroid surface and receives powerful laser pulses from the solar pumped laser above. these pulses are directed by the lander through optical fibres to spots on the asteroid surface. 7. The laser blasts create plasma plumes. Those flashes of plasma flow into a magnetic channel which sorts through the atoms causing gold to selectively plate on to a ribbon forming a ribbon of pure gold that is returned to Earth. 8. Other useful materials are plated on to a secondary ribbon remaining on the satellite, and auctioned off to anyone who wants to come and get it. 9. When the ribbon is filled, it is wound up into a return capsule. That capsule then uses laser energy to launch the capsule back to Earth, where it is recovered along with the billion dollar gold ribbon inside. 10. You can buy pieces of gold once they're recovered https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1dp5BukpHc

Asteroid mining: Deep Space Industries to harvest asteroids by 2020 - TomoNews
 
01:19
SILICON VALLEY, CALIFORNIA — A California startup plans to mine asteroids for profit. The company from Silicon Valley, Deep Space Industries, recently announced that it plans on launching a precursor mission in 2017 and will commence its first mission by 2020. The company wants to mine asteroids for water, carbon and other elements, precious metals, and even in-space building materials. It will begin with extracting water. Deep Space Industries plans on sending a small spacecraft named Prospector-1 to low-Earth orbit on an experimental mission. The Prospector-1 weighs 50 kilograms when fueled and was designed to be cost effective. Once the initial campaign is complete, Prospector-1 will hitch a ride on low-Earth orbit then point towards an asteroid and jet propel itself to its target. Once near, Prospector-1 will map the surface and subsurface of the asteroid locating resources. Prospector-1 will also attempt to land on the asteroid. On the asteroid, Prospector-1 will mine water, which it will use as fuel. The craft expels superheated water vapor to generate thrust. Asteroids will be selected by a group of experts. If successful, the first mission will pave way for future spacecrafts to use asteroid water as refueling stations. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Probe to be launched into space to mine ASTEROIDS for trillions of pounds worth of metals A PROBE will be launched into space to mine ASTEROIDS for trillions of pounds worth of minerals. The small European country Luxembourg – which has a population of just 543,000 – says that it wants “to stimulate economic growth on Earth and offer new horizons in space exploration”. Many asteroids are rich in a mineral called platinum, of which there isn’t that much of on Earth. Platinum is extremely valuable and costs around $1million (£686,982) per one thousand cubic centimetres. To put that into perspective, an asteroid recently passed Earth that had £3.7trillion worth of platinumLuxembourg’s Deputy Prime. Minister and Minister of the Economy Etienne Schneider said that his government will work alongside satellite operator SES and two US companies – Planetary Resources and Deep Space Industries – to make the challenging feat possible. Planetary Resources, which is backed by Google co-founder Larry Page, said that asteroids are “the low-hanging fruit of the solar system." They added: “A single 500-metre platinum-rich asteroid contains more platinum than has been mined in the history of humanity.”

Seg_1 Planetary Resources Aims to Mine Asteroids for Water, Platinum - 03 May 12 - Suvarna News
 
08:27
http://www.suvarnanews.tv - 03 May 2012 - something special - Planetary Resources Aims to Mine Asteroids for Water, Platinum Planetary Resources, the asteroid mining venture backed by director James Cameron and other well-know investors, was officially announced on Tuesday. The company plans to launch exploratory spacecraft within two years and could be extracting valuable materials from near-Earth asteroids a few years after that, according to its founders. "This company is not about paper studies," said Eric Anderson, who co-founded Planetary Resources with fellow commercial spaceflight advocate Peter Diamandis. "It's not about thinking and dreaming about asteroid mining. There's plenty of talking. This is about doing. We'll create robots that go into deep space and mine asteroids. We're not going to talk about it, we're just going to do it." The company will be headquartered in Bellvue, Wash., Anderson said during a press conference held at Seattle's Museum of Flight. Chris Lewicki, president and chief engineer of the asteroid mining firm and formerly NASA's Mars mission manager, said companies like Planetary Resources could help turn Seattle into the "Silicon Valley of Space." Planetary Resources plans to go after water, precious metals like platinum, and other materials found on nearby asteroids in three phases. The first phase will be to launch a series of Earth-orbiting space telescopes to scope out suitable mining targets among what's believed to be millions of near-Earth asteroids measuring 50 meters or greater in size. Arkyd 100 The company has already started developing the spacecraft for the first phase, Anderson said. That line of low-orbit robotic probes has been dubbed the Arkyd-100 Series and will be followed on with future-generation Arkyd spacecraft that will visit likely asteroid candidates for prospecting purposes and eventually to actually mine them for materials theoretically worth billions and even trillions of dollars. With its Arkyd series, Planetary Resources is changing up the traditional model of space exploration, Lewicki said. Instead of pouring a lot of resources into developing and building a single probe like the ones used to explore Mars and conduct other space missions, the company is taking a "swarm" approach to its hunt for asteroids worth excavating. That means launching and guiding dozens or more Arkyd probes to maximize the chances of finding 20 or so asteroids that are close enough to Earth, have solar orbits that keep them near enough to visit, and have the right composition of either water or precious metal to make them worth mining, Lewicki said.
Company Financed by Google Execs and James Cameron Aims to Mine Asteroids

Google executives Larry Page and Eric Schmidt and filmmaker James Cameron are among those bankrolling a venture to survey and eventually extract precious metals and rare minerals from asteroids that orbit near Earth, the company said on Tuesday (April 24). Planetary Resources, based in Bellevue, Washington, initially will focus on developing and selling extremely low-cost robotic spacecraft for surveying missions. A demonstration mission in orbit around Earth is expected to be launched within two years, said company co-founders Peter Diamandis and Eric Anderson. Planetary Resources' aim is to open deep-space exploration to private industry, much like the $10 million Ansari X Prize competition, which Diamandis created. "I am very proud, along with my colleagues here on stage, to be announcing Planetary Resources. The vision of Planetary Resources is to make the resources of space available to humanity both in space and here on Earth, whether it's propellant from water on asteroids strategic metals and minerals that are important to promoting and creating a world of abundance here on Earth," Diamandis said at a news conference. Planetary Resources' first customers are likely to be science agencies, such as NASA, as well as private research institutes. Within five to 10 years, however, the company expects to progress from selling observation platforms in orbit around Earth to prospecting services. It plans to tap some of the thousands of asteroids that pass relatively close to Earth and extract their raw materials. Not all missions would return precious metals and minerals to Earth. In addition to mining for platinum and other precious metals, the company plans to tap asteroids' water to supply orbiting fuel depots, which could be used by NASA and others for robotic and human space missions. "What can we do with these materials that are represented by this meteorite knowledge? We can extract water, as we've mentioned, by heating this material gently to a few hundred degrees. It just comes right out of the clay material. We can distill it, and tank it back to Earth, Moon, space for use here in exploration. We can also use the bulk dirt on these asteroids for radiation shielding, and we can use the metals for structural materials, as we get more ambitious in the use of these raw materials in space," Planetary Resources advisor Thomas Jones said. "The commercial sector has the ability to build multiple, simple, small spacecraft that can access these objects. We can accept failures in a way that the government's very expensive scientific spacecraft would not like to accept failure or risk. And they can mount these spacecraft missions - the commercial sector - at a higher pace, or a faster pace than the once per decade science missions that NASA's able to afford," Jones said. The two men declined to discuss how much money has been raised for their venture so far. In addition to Google billionaires Page and Schmidt and filmmaker Cameron, Planetary Resources investors include former Microsoft chief software architect Charles Simonyi, a two-time visitor to the International Space Station, Google founding director K. Ram Shriram and Ross Perot Jr.
