*A giant bag would be cast over it and it would be towed to new location
*Captured asteroid could provide stepping stone for exploration of Mars
*It would be first time a celestial object has ever been moved by humans

Nasa scientists are planning to capture a 500 ton asteroid , relocate it and turn it into a space station for astronauts on their way to Mars.

The White House's Office of Science and technology will consider the £1.6bn plan in the coming weeks as it prepares to set its space exploration agenda for the next decade.

If approved it would be the first time a celestial object has ever been moved by humans.

That's exactly what I was gonna say. Why waste billions to move a rock to the moon?



Unless it is true that we were told not to go back...

Interesting stuff. Perhaps they fancy pulling the rock into our orbit and crash landing it on Tehran....coffeetime.gif

I concur; maybe we were told never ever to return...damned.gif

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

Let's hope they don't mess up and accidentally crash it into Earth..? We are no where near being masters of space. Not even close..Hate to see all hell break loose over an experiment!
