Mining the Sky - Some very big names are popping up in the news regarding asteroid mining startup company Planetary Resources. A big press conference is scheduled next week in Seattle when more details will be revealed to the public. If you’ve read John Lewis’ book on the subject (I highly recommend it), you’ll understand just how big an impact this could have. Are we witnessing the beginning of a California-gold-rush-space-equivalent?
Join visionary Peter H. Diamandis, M.D.; leading commercial space entrepreneur Eric Anderson; former NASA Mars mission manager Chris Lewicki; and planetary scientist & veteran NASA astronaut Tom Jones, Ph.D. on Tuesday, April 24 at 10:30 a.m. PDT in Seattle, or via webcast, as they unveil a new space venture with a mission to help ensure humanity’s prosperity.
