Based on an idea by pagroove in this topic:

"Could there be a pylon mounted missile (mining machine) that locks on a large asteroid. Then flies to it. Then starts up braking this into boulders and splinters. When its ready the machine wraps all splinters up automatically an presents itself to you as a scoopable container with all those minerals/ore or gold inside."

Special thanks to Thargoid for alowing me to borrow bits from his licence file.

And also using bits of code from his armory Oxp.

Also Thanks to Erich Walch for guiding me to correct the AIs.
