So I was doing a nice playtrough, and got this breaktrough: "Capturing asteroids". Awesome, as I am not being very lucky with the spawn rate of those. Basically, what it does is that it cancels the limted time to mine it if you land an asteroid lander...

The problem is that after the first asteroid I landed in, I noticed that the timer doesn't go back if I leave the asteroid (with my lander).

Now it is fine, but I can quickly see my hotbar full of depleted asteroids in a few hours. There is no way of removing them, Probably the game performance will suffer too in the long run.

Is there any way of getting rid of the unwanted asteroids when you have this tech? do they go away when resources are depleted by their own?
