Can you imagine packing your belongings and hopping on a spaceship to go live on another planet for the rest of your life?
Eric Anderson, co-founder of Bellevue-based asteroid mining company Planetary Resources, certainly can.
Anderson gave a great talk at this week’s Hacker News Meetup, a monthly get-together of geeks who like reading Hacker News. The spaceflight and tech entrepreneur spoke about his company, which has plans to launch robotic spacecraft to mine resource-rich asteroids.
He also believes we’ll be sending people to space permanently within a few decades.
