NASA to put a boulder in Moon's orbit during Asteroid Redirect Mission

NASA has recently announced that it plans to capture a boulder from the surface of a near-Earth asteroid and put it into a stable orbit around the moon during its 'Asteroid Redirect Mission' (ARM), which would then be further explored by the astronauts.

The mission would act as the testbed for exploring deep space including Mars as well.
