Chris Lewicki, Planetary Resources

- The specific, compelling opportunity
- A new, nearly infinite resource supply: The vast majority of asteroids were discovered only in the past decade; many are energetically closer than the Moon with ore grades 100x the richest precious metal mines on Earth
- A specific plan: Planetary Resources has identified the most valuable ore bodies in the Solar System. Vehicles are being built launched to prospect and claim them over the next five years • A compelling business opportunity: - - Space mining is different, not necessarily harder. Discovery, prospecting, and extraction costs are comparable and sometimes less than terrestrial mining
