Asteroid Mining

Asteroid mining, by some accounts is considered the next frontier in the search for natural resources…which has me wondering.

If something like the Tardigrade can survive a trip through the Earth’s atmosphere, then what makes asteroid industrialists (and their supporters) give so little weight to the risk of introducing a dangerous alien pathogen to the homeworld?
