Area of Science: Physics

Project Title: Mobile Asteroids



Our problem is to be able to move the asteroid into earth's orbit so we can mine the asteroid for different metals.

Is to find out approximately how much fuel and different materials that would be required to obtain an asteroid from a point in space, and be able to maneuver it's course into earth's orbit. From there we will be able to extract different materials from the asteroid. Such as hard metals, and possible gasses/fossil fuels. Our resources are coming from various web sites across the world.

The URL's are as follows:

Using different mathematical formulas from different resources we will compile a very complex C++ program. This program will determine the amount of fuel, the distance, the time, weight, and all other factors that will affect the moving of the asteroid.
