A new asteroid-mining company launched Tuesday with the goal of helping humanity expand across the solar system by tapping the vast riches of space rocks.

The new firm, called Deep Space Industries, Inc., announced today (Jan. 22) that it plans to launch a fleet of prospecting spacecraft in 2015, then begin harvesting metals and water from near-Earth asteroids within a decade or so. Such work could make it possible to build and refuel spacecraft far above our planet's surface, thus helping our species get a foothold in the final frontier.

So many of these space mining company's are all talk & no action. The space mining industry sure is getting crowed these days.
I remember the last space mine mission announcement

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/scie.....t-17827347

& where are they now.

Anyways .... none of them are anywhere near close to China's 2009 announcement's that they are going to mine in space.

China is way out in front.

Hell there already planning to strip mine other planets & to mine Helium 3 on the moon.
