*GASSP*

Oh thank god I made it out of there alive. I started reading the comments and was almost choked by the stupid.

In all fairness, this does sound like a pretty amazing idea. As a mechanical engineer to be, working on asteroid mining would easily be my number 1 dream job. Could be pretty lucrative too, by the sounds of it.

This is the kind of mission that could really outdo the others:

I think they fully expect over 99% of submissions to be either stupid and/or infeasible - it's the rare bright idea their own experts might not have come up with they are angling for here.

lol, no, we want someone on OUR side doing that.

I think the optimal situation would be for a country that isn't the United States, but is allied with us, doing something similar. Then everybody can get excited about it without American politics being a big problem.
