ASTEROIDS

Asteroids

This track will address both the catastrophic potential of global annihilation and the unlimited resource potential for an industrial society for in-space manufacturing. Near Earth Asteroids (NEAs) contain riches in abundance if we can tap them safely but also offer the potential of ending life as we know it on Earth if we do not learn to defend ourselves from potential impact events. This track will address the good, the bad, and the ugly of asteroids in our future.
