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.

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
