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
& 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.
