work on getting rid of all the space junk orbiting the earth
Can you imagine what would happen to the price of things if they found vast quantities of them on another planet. Items that are rare on earth such as gold, silver, palladium, etc., would the discovery affect the price?I'd love to see some extensive research on mining, harvesting materials from other planets. It would solve a lot of problem here on Earth and also would help building in space or on another planetary bodies.
I've never understood the desire others have for living on another planet. I have enough separation anxiety when they move to another state. Will I ever see them again? My brother moved from TX to FL, 1,100 miles, and it's been 5 years since we've had a meal together. We facetime, etc., but that's not the same.I would like to see the USSF to take people to a habitable planet.
I'm sure it would, but this could easily be countered. Probably only governmental companies would be allowed to do these kind of things. They could regulate the amount of minerals that could come back to earth. I also think it just wouldn't worth the effort. As you might know it is REALLY hard to bring back things to earth from orbit.. let alone an asteroid with tonnes of payload.. When I wrote mining and research on extracting these minerals from other planetary bodies, I meant [and also wrote down] that these alloys should be used to construct stuff on the Moon for example. It would reduce the cost, speed the process up and remove the environmental harms from our home planet.Can you imagine what would happen to the price of things if they found vast quantities of them on another planet.
