Asteroid mining outpost #2
In this speculative illustration a massive manned mining outpost is built around a rocky near-Earth asteroid about 300 million miles from Earth. In the foreground are arrays of solar photovoltaic panels similar to those currently supplying power to the International Space Station (ISS).
This oblong asteroid is approximately 2,000 feet long by 1,000 feet wide. The mining base and its supporting structure is nearly one-half statute mile long.
