SEATTLE, Wash. – A Seattle company that plans to mine asteroids in outer space says it will make a groundbreaking announcement today during an online press event.

Planetary Resources says the subject of today’s press conference will, quote, “change the way humanity explores the cosmos.”

Company officials say their engineers have been working on advanced space technology and are going to share a new level of access to their observations with the public.

The event, scheduled to get underway at 10:00 a.m., will feature company officers as well actor Brent Spiner, who played Lt. Commander Data on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
