Maybe I'm misinterpreting the stuff here, but I'm under the impression that they want to mine asteroids that already are in Earth's orbit. Why waste a shitload of money and energy to drag some piece of rock over (with all the delicate targeting and orbiting snafu opportunities), when you can have the same for free? You just have to wait for the right one, quickly mine what you can while it's within reasonable distance, and then let it float on, back where it came from.

You are as stupid (or troll) as the parent is.
Condoms help people, that already have AIDS, exactly how? How do they help children born with AIDS? The African rape victims? The recent Korean transplant patients, where they got infected organs because of some diagnostic snafu?
FYI, malaria is not a bacterium. Antibiotics help you exactly as much as condoms. There are antimalarics, but they are expensive, and their side effects can be as debilitating as malaria itself. Also, malaria is becoming resistant.
Not happy yet.
