Developer Gearbox has focused too much on providing fan service than including any original or creative ideas of its own.
Following a few days of excited build-up, Planetary Resources, a new space startup backed by heavy hitters including Larry Page and James Cameron, officially announced its plans to mine asteroids near Earth. At the Tuesday morning event, which took place at the packed Space Gallery in the Museum of Flight in Seattle, the company said it would launch phase one of its mission within two years and use the next decade just to identify resource-rich asteroids.
Just what the heck is Planetary Resources? Set to debut next Tuesday, the new company will “overlay two critical sectors — space exploration and natural resources,” according to a media alert from yesterday.
