The company Planetary Resources had great success with their Arkyd-6 mission earlier this year and were recently purchased by a ConsenSys. I'm wondering if they have published any plans about future missions or what's next for the company as their timeline seems to have no data about the future.


Their timeline has no info because Planetary resources is dead. They were unable to meet investor performance goals and then died. The buyout you mentioned was just a talent acquisition move, not a technology acquisition. https://www.geekwire.com/2018/amid-departures-planetary-resources-holds-hope-asteroid-mining-comeback/

    $\begingroup$ Fair point, I suppose this article isn't terribly desriptive. ConsenSys is a blockchain company. They don't even do any sattelites. Also litterally every engineering lead left after the buyout. Someone I know who had connections there is where I got the information to read between the lines. $\endgroup$ – Knudsen Number Mar 17 at 1:58
