Can’t wait to get started mining those asteroids…

A bipartisan bill introduced in Congress last week would ensure that U.S. companies are able to mine resources from asteroids free from “harmful interference.”

The cleverly named American Space Technology for Exploring Resource Opportunities in Deep Space (ASTEROIDS) Act of 2014, which was sponsored by Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) and Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-WA), would establish and protect “property rights for commercial space exploration and utilization of asteroid resources.”
