Our values are straight-forward.
We are first and foremost a business. We aim to extract resources from asteroids to boost the Earth's economy and kick start the Space Based Economy as the vast values of some asteroids can be valued in trillions, with the largest asteroids being worth quintillions, while even small asteroids can be hugely valuable. This money will be spent in building ever growing amounts of space infrastructure so that we can eventually allow all humans who desire it to live and work in Space.
The Asteroid Mining Corporation is also an ecologically minded, ethical company. We believe asteroid mining will greatly benefit the world environmentally, by moving industry into space so that in future the Earth can look upon our planet as the fragile and all important oasis of the Solar System. A home where all humanity can live in peace. Finally we aim to mine asteroids for something much more profound than merely profit. We are driven by a deep and life long obsession with space. It has been almost 50 years since man first set foot on the Moon, and in that time we haven't even been back. We want to allow every person on this planet the opportunity to visit, or even live and work in space if they so desire within the next fifty years. With fifty years of continuous economic exploitation of space we foresee that there will be an Asteroid Mining Corporation colony on Ceres by the time our CEO retires.
This is our lifelong passion and ambition, and everyone at the Asteroid Mining Corporation has decided to devote their entire lives to something larger and infinitely more bold than most things in our current society. We want to contribute and directly spur the manned human exploration of Space. The technologies we are developing will allow us to supply colonies on Mars, to explore the Oceans of Europa and Enceladus to finally prove whether or not we are alone in the Solar System. Eventually mankind will leave our solar system and will go on the greatest adventure in human history, to explore and settle a distant star, so that our great-grandchildren will one day be able to look up at the stars from Earth and say, there are people like me up there. At this point we will have evolved into Homo Stellaris: the humans of the stars.
It is Asteroid Mining technologies that will unlock this final great stage of human evolution, allowing us to take our rightful place amongst the planets and stars and transcend the petty squabbles and nationalisms of Earth.
