Nice Animation of Asteroids at Asterank

Nice 3D animations of asteroids at Asterank.

Asterank maintains a database of 600,000 asteroids in our solar system. It also estimates the mining potential of each asteroid e.g.

Asteroid Vishnu at $36.1 Trillion.

Asterank is part of Planetary Resources, one of the first companies setup for asteroid mining.
