The future of Solar System Exploration, regardless of the midterm goals and steps, will ultimately be dependent on the usage of the resources of Near Earth Objects and the Asteroid belt. How will we go about using these resources, and how can we obtain them will be a critical question to ask in the future of in Space development. Furthermore, assuring that we have the technology to effectively deflect asteroid hazards as they become apparent will represent key developments in our future explorations. With new directions in our Space program, key developments in this sector are set to rapidly advance into the next several decades.
