I have a friend who is majoring in aeronautical engineering.

I talked to him a couple of weeks ago. He said they had disccused, in
class, about towing asteroids and placing them in orbit to mine.

Not a good idea since they might eventually fall to earth they decided.

He does, however, believes this will one day be a reality.

They'll only fall to Earth if they don't travel fast enough. Seems like a simple mathematical equation can solve that problem, no?
