starship-design: NEEP 602 Lecture #16

I found a page at the University of Wisconsin that has an interesting 
lecture about Near Earth Asteroids. I think everyone here is familiar with 
my position on the importance of commercializing space and the heck with 
planetary surfaces...

This paper explains just exactly what is out there waiting to be harvested. 
Not only is it a matter of providing raw materials for space borne 
industry, you can get rich out there...


The best part is almost to the end of the document where the lecturer 
covers the amount of precious metals fond in a typical metallic asteroid. 
Sounds like incentive to me. Now if I could just find some way of getting 
this mining boat into space...
