Curiosity Engineers Added to Cart
It seems Planetary Resources, the ambitious off-planet mining company covered here in April, has snatched up a few of the engineers from the Nuclear-Powered Science Robot Dune Buggy with Lasers team (Curiosity or MSL, if one must), covered here ongoingly.

They’re certainly not shy about it; they’ve put together a video starring the engineers.

Talent Poaching?
The space race is definitely going public, but how do we feel about private companies hoovering up the best and brightest from NASA or other government research organizations?

Here’s the Planetary Resources video, and have a look at their site, too.
