Planetary Resources: Asteroid Mining Mission Revealed

Watching this Planetary Resources video about their mission to near-Earth asteroids makes me feel like I’m watching a made-up video from a movie set in the future. But once again, the future is now and is being backed by a handfull of multi-millionaires who are using the private sector to find water and platinum, among other valuable resources, in space.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.

Curated, kid-friendly, independently-published. Support this mission by becoming a sustaining member today.
