But there's ongoing discussion of mounting a piloted mission to an asteroid – a voyage by astronauts to a near-Earth object, termed NEO for short. These proponents feel certain of the scientific payoff from reaching, first-hand, an asteroid – perhaps even becoming able to exploit these chunks of celestial flotsam to further humankind's plunge into the cosmos


This is a great idea, I don't know why it wasn't thought of sooner. Is this our best shot at exploring deep space?

Im quite sure asteroids will have plenty of usefull resources for us and as asteroids dont have a ecosystem i dont see a problem with eating up the asteroids.
