Commercial Asteroid Hunters Announce Plans For New Robotic Exploration Fleet
Santa Monica CA (SPX) Jan 25, 2013
A NewSpace start up Deep Space Industries claims it will send a fleet of asteroid-prospecting spacecraft out into the solar system to hunt for resources to accelerate space development to benefit Earth. These "FireFly" spacecraft utilize low-cost CubeSat components and get discounted delivery to space by ride-sharing on the launch of larger communications satellites. "This is the first commercial campaign to explore the small asteroids that pass by Earth," said Deep Space Chairman Rick Tumlinson ( ... read more
