Asteroid Mining 101 by John Lewis

Wealth for the New Space Economy

A new book by globally recognized expert Dr. John S. Lewis.

John Lewis, renowned author of popular science books, “Rain of Iron and Ice,” and “Mining the Sky:  Untold Riches from the Asteroids, Comets and Planets,” has released his newest publication, Asteroid Mining 101: Wealth for a New Space Economy. Considered to be the worlds’ foremost expert on Asteroids and Near Earth Objects, Dr. Lewis has created this comprehensive guide to Asteroid Mining.

“Almost everything that I care about most can be found within the pages of this remarkable work:  meteorites, comets, asteroids, robots, geology, mining and even spaceships,” said Geoff Notkin, science writer and host of TV’s Meteorite Men.

“Dr Lewis goes into fascinating details regarding the origin and composition of meteorites, then takes us on a journey to the asteroids themselves.  The reader begins to grasp the staggering scientific and material wealth awaiting us within those rubble piles.  Reading Asteroid Mining 101 made me want to grab my favorite pickaxe and put on a spacesuit.  Be warned asteroids, we’re coming to get you!”
