SDROsForFISO - Adamo_11-7-13.pdf
Interesting propellantless stable orbit alternative for asteroid retrieval/capture missions, for parking an asteroid near the moon. Possible alternative to traditional EML1/2 lunar ops.

NASA - Robotic Asteroid Prospector (RAP) Staged from L-1: Start of the Deep Space Economy
The demo of vacuum mining techniques and the combined cycle solar thermal/solar electric propulsion is interesting. Run a very hot solar brayton cycle turbogenerator, with waste heat dumped via a large radiator, or a thermal heat exchanger rocket chamber nozzle.
