May 19, 2003: One Step Closer To Transhuman Space

Having recently spent a good deal of time on the Transhuman Space supplements Transhuman Space: Deep Beyond (now available!) and Transhuman Space: High Frontier (coming soon), I've taken a lot of interest in the tiny steps we're taking today to get closer to the plausible, yet fantastic future of the 22nd century.

According to this New Scientist article, the first probe specifically designed to explore an asteroid just launched. If all goes according to plan, the Japanese satellite Muses-C will return in 2007 from asteroid 1998 SF 36 with a host of data, including samples.
