SpaceX Falcon Heavy will let us reach 15 times more asteroids than current rockets

• https://www.nextbigfuture.com

Martin Elvis at Harvard University describes how the SpaceX Heavy allows us to reach over 40% of the asteroids where before we could reach 3%. This is because the SpaceX Heavy allows higher speeds (delta-V aka change in velocity) to be reached.

An orbitally refueled SpaceX BFR will allow the upper stage Big Falcon Spaceships to reach 9 or 10 kilometers per second. The SpaceX BFR will let us reach 80 to 90% of the asteroids.

Planetary Resources has placed its first telescope in space. They are beginning to execute their asteroid prospecting plans.
