Anderson is expected to address conference attendees on his new company's plans for asteroid mining. "Planetary Resources is perfectly aligned with the second half of the National Space Society's vision, that of 'the utilization of space resources for the dramatic betterment of humanity,'" said Paul E. Damphousse, NSS's Executive Director, "We look forward to hearing more specifics on the company's strategies for harvesting planetary materials for use here on Earth."

Planetary Resources has been making waves in the space community since the April 24 press conference announcing the company's formation by Anderson, Co-Founder and Chairman of Space Adventures; and Peter Diamandis, Founder and Chairman of the X Prize Foundation, Co-Founder and Director of Space Adventures, and CEO and Co-Founder of Zero Gravity Corporation.

Investors in Planetary Resources include Google founders Eric Schmidt and Larry Page, film director James Cameron, former Microsoft chief software architect Charles Simonyi, and Ross Perot, Jr.
