The universe is explored on the one hand to satisfy human curiosity. At the same time, people are also eager to take advantage of deep-sea resources.
"Until now, humans have done more than 200 exploratory exploration activities. The use and development of space resources has become a global hot spot and the asteroid colonization will soon come," said a Chinese scientist academy at the National Science Space Researcher.
An asteroid is a celestial body of the solar system that has a much larger volume and mass than one planet in the orbit of the sun. Asteroid approaching the Earth is close to Earth asteroid. In addition, there is an asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and about 90% of the asteroid asteroids are known.
Although they are small, there is a large amount. There are probably millions of asteroids in the solar system. For asteroids, people do not know enough about it. "More than 60% of the asteroids do not get accurate data, some of them have data spectra, but the analysis is in superficial composition and does not recognize internal composition." Yang Zhen has pointed out that although there are still many potential or potential valued beans, the asteroid is still under discussion.
But preliminary observations also make people eager. Scientists believe that Amara has a total of 3,554 km of diameter, with 3554 asteroids, requiring 20 trillion more than platinum and other metal deposits. Asteroid 252 kilometers, 16-Psychic, whose mineral value was named astronomer: $ 1019.
If you want to colonize asteroids, early "exploration" is essential. In fact, the United States, Europe and Japan have asteroid exploration programs and some exploration projects have been carried out. The small and medium-sized countries are planning to carry out deep-sea exploration projects. At the same time, more and more venture capital and private companies are based on space exploration, aiming at mining and using asteroid resources. This means that the time has come for colonization asteroids.
