It sounds like something from a sci-fi movie, but it's an opportunity to scientists really wild to explore: how to put a space station within an asteroid, sciencealert.com report.
Why do we have attempted such an amazing feat of astro-engineering? Since the spin of the asteroid may create enough gravity to mining equipment for efficient use, which gives us the opportunity to engage in extensive mineral resources and deposits within this celestial rock.
In addition, the researchers believe, rocky asteroid body can also help keep the mine safe from the danger of being in space – cosmic X-rays and all.
This strange idea might just be possible, according to new research by astrophysicists from the University of Vienna in Austria, which applied some modern models of gravity hypothetical asteroid, measuring 500 meters by 390 meters (1,640 feet to 1,280 feet).
