The U.S. space Agency announced the next principal and expensive projects relatively asteroids. It turned out that NASA intend later to tame the potentially hazardous asteroids and made them into space refueling.
The earth's population will be able to use the asteroids to refuel spacecraft, convince NASA. The followers of the Agency's claim that the space of the body, rich in hydrogen and minerals, can be processed with the aim of obtaining fuel for ships. Now the main problem of scientific workers is to gain immediate technical tools that will not only allow you to mine asteroids for the same significant metals, but also to make the production profitable.
The author of the initiative was made by the program Manager to monitor near-earth objects don womans. He acknowledges that this extraordinary "processing" will help to solve the problem of development of the far corners of the Solar system. This is because, on the surface of these objects are vast reserves of valuable minerals, water and hydrogen, which in consequence of a private-duty vehicles are not able to take from the Earth.
Remember, 1 from the asteroids, which says NASA, passed close by Earth on January 26. Space object weighing 157 million tons and a diameter of about a mile, was approaching the planet at a very close distance 1.2 million km
