Obama Requests $105M for NASA to Lasso an Asteroid to Orbit the Moon

4/6/13
The Obama administration will reportedly request $105 million for a NASA-led mission to capture an asteroid and place it in orbit around the moon. The request was made public during a congressional briefing last week, according to officials, in which the administration put forth its proposal as part of its broader 2014 budget.

According to reports, NASA will use the funding to capture an asteroid as soon as 2017, tug it into orbit around the moon, and send astronauts to study the surface and subsurface composition. NASA has suggested the mission could focus on identifying a 500-ton, 25-foot asteroid by 2017 and having it in orbit by 2019. Astronauts would then travel to the asteroid in 2021 via Constellation rocket, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

...the mission could ultimately provide NASA with the data and experience necessary to nudge a deadly incoming asteroid out of the way, if necessary.

Great, one wrong move and we're having a galactic friendly fire incident.

50 bucks says they drop it on the middle east by 'accident'.

Would be funny if they find a new mineral which can be used for all sorts in high tech hardware.

Apple might buy it and name it "The new Istone"
