Not being satisfied with just having dived to the deepest point in the ocean, James Cameron is now an investor in the worlds first asteroid mining company known as Planetary Resources. With an investor and advisor group that also includes Larry Page and Eric Schmidt from Google, Planetary Resources seems like something straight out of a science fiction movie but it looks like the company will start investigating potential asteroids to mine in 2013.
While I still try to absorb the whole concept of an “asteroid mining company” actually existing, check out the video above and if you want to find our more info visit the Planetary Resources website.
Sidenote: With James Cameron on board I was hoping the video above would have a bit more flash to it. Then I realized they are talking about mining on an asteroid which is pretty flashy enough.
