Off earth mining and the opening of space

Off earth mining and the opening of space

Rick Tumlinson is a US businessman whose ambition is to mine asteroids and to then use the material he extracts to power space craft and satellites. He talks of developing galactic ‘gas stations’. In part three of our special summer series we look at the technical, political and legal issues involved in ‘off-earth mining’. (Please note this program was originally broadcast on the 10th of March 2013)
