http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/121324-NASA-Consid ers-Dragging-Asteroids-to-the-Moon

NASA is currently considering a plan put together by the Keck Institute for Space Studies to literally drag a small asteroid into high lunar orbit. The plan, if implemented, would begin by sending a slow-moving, robotic craft to a target asteroid approximately seven meters wide. After making some final calculations, the craft would catch the asteroid in a 10 by 15 meter bag and return to a high lunar orbit. The Keck Institute believes this project could be completed relatively easily by the 2020s, and would cost approximately $2.6 billion, only slightly more than the Curiosity Mars rover project.

The fuck NASA?

I was under the impression NASA had shut down from lack of funds.

If it means we'll know more about space travel, I'm all for it. I'd rather our government spend money on space travel than things like welfare for crack addicts.

They're preparing to construct the tether for a space elevator, and they need an asteroid to keep the tension in it and provide lift due to the rotation of the planet.

How did you come up with this? We don't need an asteroid for that at all.

How did you come up with this?

One of nasa's directors put out a book about 3 years ago, I have it somewhere around the house here

It describes how simple it would be to build if we could get multiple nations to pool their resources

We don't need an asteroid for that at all.

It's the best thing for the job, the tether needs a counterweight to keep it's tension

Took me a couple read through to fully understand what the hell they're talking about doing.

It's a cool idea. Just hoping it doesn't backfire when they try to do that.

I believe it was Frys something food store. And you were a nutritionist. I dont have your FB, and I deleted you off of MSN.

You were unresponsive to my creepy, selfish commands.

"There are actually quite a few benefits to the Keck Institute's plan. The Obama administration has previously expressed interest in exploring near-Earth asteroids, but the required long-term mission would place teams well beyond the reach of any rescue. Bringing space rocks back home would provide all the scientific benefits of an asteroid mission without putting lives in immediate jeopardy. Having a handy orbiting asteroid could also have applications for scientists learning how to extract minerals and fuel, which might set the stage for future exploration missions to Mars and beyond. "

THAT'S IT! FUCK YOU GOVERNMENT! NO MORE TAXES FOR YOU TIL YOU GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER!

NASA need their budget increased so we can have more of these amazing projects taking place, and also so that they can occur sooner. It's a good project, as there is much research to be done about comets and asteroids.

last I heard, they were making the space elevator ribbon in Japan but that was before the tsunami/quakes, a while back.

There are supposedly alot of precious metals and such in some of these near earth asteroids, such as plat', which can be used for catalytic converters and life support systems, among other things. I never really hear much of refining these moonrocks though.


Thanks to Green-Chicken for the sig graphics, ur awesome.

This just shows you how primitive we are compared to what could be out there beyond our reach. I think it's a neat idea and I hope it proves meaningful as the more we know about the universe the better I say.

Seriously, the money NASA receives from the government has always been notoriously low

It would great to see this happen and for NASA to receive more federal funding for paying for cool projects like this

So what is exactly the point of picking up an asteroid in a burlap sack and moving it? Shouldn't we work on something more tangible like a space colony?

There has got to be enough money to go around to fund the most fruitful projects
