isabel marant shoes outlet isabel marant shoes outlet DA14 asteroid worth billions if mined for natural resources



The asteroid due to fly by Earth this week contains raw materials worth an estimated 125 billion $195bn, according to a firm that wants to mine the solar system for natural resources.



On Friday, the 150ftwide, 130,000ton asteroid will zoom within 17,100 miles of our planet the closest for any known isabel marant shoes outlet flyby of this size.



Celestial mining firm Deep Space Industries DSI has calculated that the massive asteroid, dubbed DA 14, would contain resources worth billions if only they could get hold of it.



Reach for the stars: It would be worth your while if the DSIs calculations about the asteroids worth are correct



The company has no plans to go after Fridays asteroid it is apparently tilted at too dangerous an angle to Earth to make it worth their while.



But it says the valuable lump of rock that will whiz past us illustrates just how much money there is to be made from asteroid resources.



The firm has assessed the asteroids components on the basis of its brightness, and calculates that if its mass is five per cent recoverable water, it would be worth 42bn $65bn as the water could be split into oxygen and hydrogen and sold as rocket fuel.



If ten per cent of it is easily recovered iron, nickel or other metals, that would be worth another 83bn $130bn.



Howev isabel marant shoes outlet er the DSI admits that a lot depends on the estimates of the asteroids size being correct Nasa believes it is about 150ft wide and 130,000 tons, but it could be well off the mark.

It is one of two celestial mining firms to have gone public recently, the other being Planetary Resources, which has investment from Google execs Larry Page and Eric Schmidt.



The point behind plundering the solar system for resources already up there would be to cut down on the vast cost of sending exploratory missions up from Earth it currently costs around 6.5m $10m to send each ton of material up to Space for a mission.



The firm announced its plan for celestial mining last month, but says Fridays asteroid is not on its list.



The firm plans to begin its first harvesting missions in the solar system in about ten years, after sending up exploratory spacecraft in 2015 and 2016.



Meanwhile, this weeks asteroid is expected to fly past so close that stargazers from Eastern Europe to Australia should be able to see it with just a pair of binoculars.



But experts insist it will not come dangerously close.



No Earth impact is possible, said Donald Yeomans, manager of Nasas NearEarth Object programme at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. isabel marant shoes outlet
