Asteroid Mining:

Look up to the sky... no not to the stars, thats to far... how about those asteroids scattered around out there.

This mod allows you to research a technology to harvest asteroids for valuable minerals, by sending a rocket with the new special Asteroid Excavator and returning the yield down to the planet.
The asteroid ore can be processed into chunks of useful minerals for further processing.

Version1.1.0:
Added an advanced processing research allowing you to specialize your refining to either iron/copper/uranium.

For the people asking about real hard numbers: you get 5.000 asteroid ore which you refine into 40% iron chunks, 40% copper chunks, 10% coal chunks and 10% uranium chunks. Each chunk can be processed into 50 of the repective ore (because of the stack size which can´t be exceeded in a recipe)
Specialized refining: Iron/Copper/(Coal/Uranium)
-Iron: 60/20/20 coal
-Copper: 60/20/20 coal
-Uraium: 33/33/34 urainum
