Space mining. Illustration of astronauts using pneumatic drills to mine the surface of an asteroid for precious ores. Nearby is a digger, a storage tank, and the landing craft. Parked amid the surrounding asteroids is their half-filled space shuttle. A third astronaut flies across the foreground with a jet-pack, apparently in search of other sites to mine.
