Nasa is reportedly training a team of astronauts for a mission to land on an asteroid by the end of the next decade

We won't even have a human rated lifter in the next decade, let alone one that can take man out of LEO.

So NASA is going to follow in Planetary resources footsteps?

Pretty sure this is Lunar Lander; not Asteroids

No, subby. Asteroids is all pew, pew, pew. They are not doing that.

I recall the Orion module (ATK/Liberty) was supposed to be testing in 2014. CST100 (Boeing/Atlas) was the year after, or somewhere there abouts. Then there's SpaceX, which is really just waiting for the paperwork at this point.
All three are eventually meant for beyond orbit operations.

If NASA really wants to go to an asteroid then they need to be taking big steps to do so before the 2016 elections and the next cycle of budgetary raep.

No, silly. Planetary Resources has enough legislators in its pockets to kill NASAs manned programs AND still spend all remaining money doing the R&D for them. Why spend your hard earned dollars when you can spend taxpayer dollars?

Ain't modern capitalism grand?

Maybe someday they'll actually play real-life Lunar Lander

They must have a bunch of people who just sit around thinking shiat up.

Dear newspapers of the world, I know it's hard for you to understand, but it's "NASA", not "Nasa". Thank you.

Why doesn't subby show us love? I mean, drilling on asteroids and blowing them up?

Not following SpaceX?

Nasa's going to let a Russian Cosmonaut hitch a ride?
