Mining asteroids.

A U.S. conglomerate of billionaires and entrepreneurs are putting together a company to collect asteroids to bring to earth and mine.  As the rare earth metals used in electronics are found mostly in China, and exclusively mined there, this means that should it succeed it will offer a new source to collect rare earths so there will be no political risk to prevent the march of XBOX but on the downside there's a potential to bring aliens or disease to earth.  What extraterrestrial disease would you accept to keep your XBOX?
