Asteroid, mine

I write a sporadically monthly column for Blastr, the science/science fiction web news portal for the SyFy channel. My latest is about asteroid mining -- the company Planetary Resources announced recently they have big plans to Go Where No Mine Has Gone before, and I give it the once over.

As I said when I wrote about this earlier, I'm enthusiastic about it, but I'd like to see details. But I'll say that the first few steps the company wants to take make a great deal of sense to me.

And hey, if you speak French -- je ne pas parles merci bleh bleh PeeWee -- the French newspaper 20 Minutes has an interview with me about all this as well. I think I come off sounding really smart, because I can't understand a word of the interview.

More of my Blastr articles are listed below, too. I seem to have a predilection for destruction. Hmmm. Maybe I'll write about unicorns and rainbows next.

Oh, wait.
