So whatever happened to google mining asteroids? Is that still going down or what?

Seems there could be many opportunities worth exploring beyond the physical mining of an asteroid. I could imagine hitch-hiking a ride on an asteroid using the velocity, mass, and shielding of the asteroid to protect the occupants as a planetary exploration vehicle. Or, perhaps using an asteroid as a very long range intercept device against another asteroid on a collision course with earth.
