    Asteroid miners to hitch a ride with Virgin Galactic - space - 13 July 2012 - New Scientist


    Not all who wander are lost... Some of us just misplaced our destination.

    I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of a man is to live, not to exist.

    The sooner the better. Once money is made from the resources in the asteroid belt it will open up the exploration of everything as far as maybe the moons of Jupiter inwards. Eventually scavenging and supplying satelites, providing fuel and supply depots of all kinds including hydrogen and oxygen (separated from water) for rocket fuel, growing and supplying food and water, and providing other possible supplies. Space hotels for layovers, living habitats -- with all kinds of the coolest possibilities without government funding. This is what has been missing to advance space exploration and utilization at a much quicker pace
