MINING ASTEROIDS COULD BECOME A POSSIBILITY

s4

Asteroid miners might be best off working inside-out. A new analysis suggest we could place a space station inside a rotating asteroid to provide simulated gravity for the mining equipment. The past few years have seen an increased interest in mining asteroids. The idea is to send probes to distant space rocks, remove chunks of resources like precious metals, and bring them back to Earth or use them to build in space.
