Can one bank on ASTERANK ?
Asterank, which defines itself as
" a scientific and economic database of over 600,000 asteroids",
appears to be as scientifically sound as can currently be expected
and is consequently not to be dismissed
as some kind of cleverly presented student prank.
(Even so, potential investors in space mining
are likely to take it all with a grain of salt.)
