Did you know NASA is planning to capture an asteroid and put it in orbit around the moon?

NASA is developing a first-ever robotic mission to visit a large near-Earth asteroid, collect a multi-ton boulder from its surface, and redirect it into a stable orbit around the moon. Once it’s there, astronauts will explore it and return with samples in the 2020s. This Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM) is part of NASA’s plan to advance the new technologies and spaceflight experience needed for a human mission to the Martian system in the 2030s.

They are going to have to trick it!
Everyone knows the fastest way to get some ass(teroid) is to hang out on the corner, and there are no corners in space!
