I do this by including critical assessments of the ideas I put forward. You presumably did not buy this book to be hyped by some huckster. If you did, I hope you will be sorely disappointed and not recommend the book to like-minded friends. There is seldom a perfect place to begin a century-long ongoing story, but I choose to start with the writings of the Russian rocket pioneer Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky (1857-1935). At age 10 he suffered a severe case of scarlet fever that left him nearly deaf.

More than 11,000 have been discovered with more than 1100 added every year, out of perhaps one to two million such objects not yet charted. However, to be easy targets for prospecting and harvesting, an asteroid also must come relatively close to Earth and have a roughly circular orbit like Earth. These characteristics for easy harvesting also make them potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs) – those that are mostly likely to impact Earth at some point. NASA has identified almost 1500 PHAs, with about 10 percent measuring more than ten football fields in diameter, large enough for mass extinctions on Earth.
