Join Peter Diamandis on today’s “Field Trip Friday,” as he tells us about Planetary Resources – “The Asteroid Mining Company” – which is building a telescope to detect small asteroids, and wants to build spaceships that can potentially intercept asteroids that come near our planet. If you’re fascinated by space travel and amazing technology, it doesn’t get any cooler than this!
You’ll also hear about other organizations Peter has co-founded, like:
. Zero G, which sends people up in a jet to experience weightlessness.
. Space Adventures, which sends citizens to the International Space Station.
. XPRIZE Foundation, which allows people to compete to win multi-million dollar prizes by taking great leaps forward in science.
. Singularity University, which challenges students to create companies that can affect the lives of a billion people.
Peter will be interviewed by former Google Science Fair winner +Shree Bose
