Be careful how you mine asteroids...

First of all, it's a pretty stable Alpha, I haven't had and serious glitches, just one or two minor things.

I'd like to share with you all the dangers of mining asteroids, and I'd like to explain

Just before I mined this asteroid, I had done the exact same thing on another one on the other side of the cosmos, the same thing happened with that asteroid also, the ore got stuck inside the asteroid and because the ore is pulled towards you, it also pulled with it, the giant -BEEP-... teroid.

There is a chance that it could get stuck for longer and you'd be pinned to the rock or just bounced around and off it as it followed you constantly.

So stay safe, and happy space travels.

    Oh wow, that's pretty scary. I think I'll increase my safety distance when mining from now on. Thanks for the heads up :)

    afaik this issue occures when an ore item is ejekted. its been dragged towards your ship, but collides with the asteroid. happens quite often..
