Tired of that mundane desk job? Want a more exciting internship experience than ferrying around coffee at a downtown law firm? Then we may have just the thing: Out-of-this-world asteroid-mining startup Planetary Resources is seeking college juniors and seniors eager to blast off into a twenty-second century career (on a temporary, six-month basis).
Planetary Resources is a bizarre new future-tech startup launched by famed Titanic director James Cameron and Google co-founder Larry Page. The organization believes there are billions
of dollars to be made harvesting the raw materials found in near-Earth asteroids.
Reads the advertisement: "Planetary Resources, Inc (PRI), The Asteroid Mining Company, is seeking qualified and enthusiastic candidates for paid cooperative education positions to assist in the development of new systems and technologies for the commercial robotic exploration of near Earth asteroids in our Bellevue, WA location. Applicants should have an interest in space systems design and application and should expect a hands-on, intense and dynamic work environment."
