John Lewis, popular writer of well known technological know-how books, Rain of Iron and Ice, and Mining the Sky: Untold Riches from the Asteroids, Comets and Planets, has published his most up-to-date ebook, Asteroid Mining one hundred and one: Wealth for a brand new house Economy. thought of to be the worlds’ most effective professional on Asteroids and close to Earth gadgets, Dr. Lewis has created this finished consultant to Asteroid Mining.

The rising asteroid mining has tremendous bold intentions. it really is in the realm of hazard that their paintings may perhaps herald a transformation in international economics as profound because the commercial Revolution.

As can be anticipated, press studies facing asteroid mining were a number of, ranging in scope from brief and breezy to extensive and critical, and in caliber from actual to impressionistic to easily uninformed.

There is sweet cause to be serious about what could be the largest game-changer in human financial background. and there's reliable cause to seem heavily on the underlying technology and engineering that shape the basis of this work.

“Almost every little thing that I care approximately such a lot are available in the pages of this striking paintings: meteorites, comets, asteroids, robots, geology, mining or even spaceships. Dr Lewis is going into attention-grabbing information in regards to the starting place and composition of meteorites, then takes us on a trip to the asteroids themselves. The reader starts off to understand the unbelievable medical and fabric wealth looking ahead to us inside these rubble piles. Reading Asteroid Mining 101 made me are looking to seize my favourite pickaxe and wear a spacesuit. Be warned asteroids, we’re coming to get you!” --Geoff Notkin, technology author and host of TV’s Meteorite Men.

Example text

Pluto, not to be left out, has a midsized satellite, Charon, which is locked in a triple resonance with Pluto: the spin period of Pluto, the spin period of Charon, and the orbital period of Charon are all the same. Charon has more than half the diameter of Pluto. Pluto also has several small outer satellites. Like Charon, many other satellites of the outer planets, including all the Galilean satellites of Jupiter, are rotationally locked onto their parent planet. There is no reason to believe that our present catalog of Solar System bodies is close to complete.

Within the last three decades something important and incredible has finally begun to happen. The rockets and space systems we thought reserved for the use of governments and soldiers have found new purposes, and new masters, people who want to use them to go beyond the purposes of science and state and turn them into tools that can be used for other goals, such as flying people and machines out to the frontier for fun and profit – oh, and to live. Weapons of mass destruction morph into both weapons of mass protection and heavenly chariots delivering untold wealth to Earth and Earth’s children.

The idea of using space resources to do things in space was not new, but no one had pulled it together in such a focused, scientifically credible and easy to understand way as Dr. Lewis did in his book Mining the Sky. The perfect sequel to Rain of Iron and Ice, this volume laid out a clear and concise approach to developing an economy and industrial base using space resources, with reality-based numbers, scientifically supportable research and solid, common sense explanations. Early on in his work building these concepts into the core of a new vision of our relationship to space, we joined forces with Dr.
