This is a lesson about exploring asteroid resources. Learners will research and document some of the requirements for mounting an expedition to an asteroid; actively explore potential resources available to space travelers through research, assessment, team cooperation, and exploration simulations; develop the background to make the connection between meteorite research and potential planetary resources; and map and core an edible asteroid. Materials lists, and advanced preparation and procedural tips are included. This is lesson 17 of 19 in Exploring Meteorite Mysteries.
