Asteroid Mining Not that Far Fetched?

Several different companies have been formed recently that contend they will mine asteroids.  While far fetched at first blush, the business model just might make sense.  Especially given the difficulty of receiving a mining permit from the EPA or similar organizations elsewhere!

The first image below depicts near earth objects in flight TODAY and the neighborhood appears to be this crowded on a regular basis.  Accordingly, the asteroid miners of the future may not have to fly to far.

The second image depicts the path of the asteroid that will pass INSIDE the orbit of the moon and INSIDE the orbit of most satellites.

If you want more details take a look at THIS BLOG ENTRY which provides more background.

Very interesting.

The path of the asteroid that flies by on Friday.
