Asteroid Mining

Planetary Resources, a company dedicated to mining Near Earth Asteroids, opened it's doors today.

We're one step closer to Total Recall.

Oh boy!

Let me just grap my Hulks and Retrievers

Clearly it's a cover for a group dedicated to destroying asteroids.

We're one step closer to Armageddon.

Source? It'll be really sweet if they do pull this off, it's high-risk high-reward, and would get space exploration really cheap.

I would totally be a space miner.
I know they probably do it with robots first, but I would be all up in that.
Then we'd uncover the Red Marker and I'd be forced to re-kill my crew with a buzz saw.
And spend two years in an asylum until it all happened again.
AND GET STABBED IN THE EYE WITH A NEEDLE!

...I don't want to be a space miner anymore.
Can I have a hug?

Well, I'm not sure how likely it will be to pull this off, but it'll defiantly be a big economy boost if they do it right, especially if it turns out to be profitable, resulting in massive civilian investment into researching more effective ways of space travel.

Actually we are one step closer to CEC's Planet Cracking (Dead Space)

What a terrible shame to waste all that ketchup on freaking out colleagues.

I cant see how there could be anything in space valuable enough to justify the cost of going into space to get it.

When we actually find a marker and your runnning for your life from god knows what with no power armor. Call me.
