Submission + - Earth-buzzing asteroid could be worth big bucks: $195B if we could catch it (networkworld.com)

That's what the scientists at Deep Space Industries, a company that wants to mine these flashing hunks of space materials, thinks the asteroid known as 2012 DA14 is worth — if they could catch it."
