asteroid mining for fun and profit 
17th-May-2012 01:37 pm

Asteroid mining has been in the news recently. Companies like Planetary Resources are an exciting take on the commercial viability of space industry. But how realistic are the trillion dollar estimates? How much would it cost to mine an object millions of miles away?

We've collected, computed, or inferred important data points such as asteroid mass and composition using scraped data from multiple scientific sources. With this information, we estimate the costs and rewards of mining rocks in space.
