It has been reported that a space exploration company would be launched next week which would pave the way for a new industry. The new company would be named Planetary Resource Inc.
It is still uncertain, as on which basis the company would be established and what will be the functions of the company. However during a press meet, the company noted, “The Company will overlay two critical sectors — space exploration and natural resources — to add trillions of dollars to the global GDP. This innovative start-up will create a new industry and a new definition of natural resources”.
Space visionary Peter Diamandis and Former NASA Mars mission manager Chris Lewicki are two famous personalities involved in the construction of the company. Chris Lewicki is the President and the Chief Engineer of the firm.
It has further come to light that Peter Diamandis and Chris Lewicki are also involved in the construction of secretive start-up called Arkyd Astronautics. Besides them, Anderson is yet another personality who is playing a vital role in the development of the new firm.
