Behind The Black Postings By Robert Zimmerman

The competition heats up: Planetary Resources has released a video showing off the prototype of their Arkyd-100 space telescope.

As I noted when this company first appeared, for the foreseeable future they are going to be a manufacturer of space telescopes, not an asteroid mining company. At the same time, they, like Deep Space Industries, are going to drive satellite development towards lower cost and smarter design, which in the long run will make asteroid mining practical and profitable.

    It would be great to see a good comparison between the goal and strategies between DSI and PRI. My take from watching DSI’s presentation is that it was not a “me too” company. They have different strategies and don’t seem to be paying as much attention to PRI as one might expect.
