Recently, James Cameron and Google announced that they were teaming up for a joint venture to begin mining asteroids. Cool, right? We're hoping that Cameron finds a way to attach a video camera to that sucker and make the best IMAX movie ever.
But it goes beyond just that -- complete with an announcement at the Museum of Flight in Seattle and coverage by international news outlets, the company, Planetary Resources, Inc., has released a business plan and initial projected costs. Maybe they're playing a massive, late April Fool's joke on the world (and if so, shame on you! There are rules, good sirs!), but this actually sounds... real.
