Sounds like something you might do in Kerbal Space Program! What an exciting time to be alive!

I was just reading a critique of Obama and how well the space program has progressed under him.

Originally this mission was to be in conjunction to sending a manned mission to the moon to also collect the samples of this asteroid. Obama cancelled the moon mission, so I'm not certain if the funding to send astronauts to the captured astroid to collect samples is provided in the cost funding.

We need to get this done so we can send some people to mars.
