More direct benefits of the Rosetta Mission
While most interviews and articles of the ESA mission talk about the pure science around Comets (their Origin and influence on providing water to earth) or age of discovery (landing on the moon),
less is talked about those more direct important area’s: Comet Mining and Asteroid impact avoidance. We see if E.T. exists later, first let’s make some bucks and avoid being wiped out like the Dinosaurs..
So assuming that NASA is looking carefully at Rosetta finding, before capturing a comet.
And then maybe, we will live after 99942 Apophis. More on these rocky stones here.
