Deep space mining and manufacturing?

Well I’ve been expecting this to be formally announced for some time, although I have to wonder what their timelines look like and how they really plan to get things back here. I also must admit to having some suspicions that it may actually be a new Glomar Explorer sort of operation (i.e. a shell for something else). Although I wonder if I’m messing with national security even to mention such suspicions. ;-)

    Interesting and grand project that could bring in great returns. However I am not sure that dragging asteroids back and putting them in earth orbit is a hot idea. We have enough space junk circulating now.
