    Asteroid that will come close to Earth tomorrow could be worth $195 billion

    The 150-foot-wide
    asteroid 2012 DA14
    which will zoom within 17,200 miles of Earth on Friday, marking the closest approach by such a large space rock that astronomers have ever known about in advance may harbor $65 billion of recoverable water and $130 billion in metals, say officials with celestial mining firm Deep Space Industries.
