Google founders, Cameron to mine asteroids
Two of Google's co-founders -- Larry Page and Eric Schmidt -- plan to join filmmaker James Cameron to mine asteroids in outer space. They call the project "Planetary Resources."
Planetary Resources aims to increase the amount of natural resources available to us here on Earth by mining asteroids.
A post on MIT's Technological Review website describes the venture as an investment in space exploration as well. Planetary Resources will formally unveil its plan in Seattle on Tuesday.
