Space News & Asteroid: Mission Extreme
Danger or opportunity?
Asteroid: Mission Extreme takes audiences on an epic journey to discover the possibilities that asteroids present for space travel. Using stunning visuals and state-of-the-art computer graphics, the film presents the fascinating idea, based on real science, that asteroids could be used as stepping stones to other worlds, veritable “way stations” in space enabling us to cross the entire solar system.
As with any venture in outer space, the challenges involved with making this idea a reality are enormous; however, a mission this extreme could ultimately lead us to learn how to protect our planet and how to successfully inhabit other worlds.
Explore what it would take for astronauts to reach an asteroid and then tame it for our use, as well as how such an extraordinary adventure could benefit humankind, in Asteroid: Mission Extreme.
