[i]To jolt NASA from its doldrums, we must give the agency an exciting, practical focus that accelerates our move into deep space.
Capturing and retrieving an asteroid will energize NASA's exploration efforts: first, access to nearby raw materials out of the Moon's gravity well; next, expeditions to extract lunar resources or visit larger, "free range" asteroids; finally, using space resources to lower the cost and risk of Mars expeditions.
Along the way, we'll create an industry that can free Earth from its finite resource limitations, paying for our space exploration efforts many times over.
Here is a space future both the White House and Congress can support. By "mining the sky" — for profit — we can enrich our society with new wealth and technological innovation.
This new mission will put Americans to work far beyond the moon, spur discovery and commerce on the newest American frontier, and give us the wealth and experience to begin the human exploration of Mars.[/i]
