Your next job: asteroid miner?
Looking to reboot your life?
A new asteroid mining venture backed by Silicon Valley titans and filmmaker James Cameron is hiring.
Planetary Resources, Inc., announced Tuesday at a news conference in Seattle that it wants to mine near-Earth asteroids for water and precious metals like gold and platinum within the next 10 years if all goes as planned. And the brand-new company is looking for a helping hand.
“You will get your hands dirty. If you prefer your hands clean, go somewhere else.”

“Since my early teenage years, I’ve wanted to be an asteroid miner. I always viewed it as a glamorous vision of where we could go,” company founder Peter Diamandis told reporters at the Museum of Flight in Seattle.
