Listen: Drake Stadium, US And Guston discussed on Monocle 24: The Monocle Daily
"There is a lot of minerals out in space more than there are on earth. The asteroid belt in particular is just ripe for the picking. So, but you know, that's really long term. I think when we when we're talking about space mining in the short term we're talking about trying to use technology as a part of the picture of humanity moving beyond the earth. So for instance, there's a lot of talk about in the US what they're calling the lunar gateway which is a space station, basically around the moon with eventually setting up. A a base on the moon Europe is in the same space right now wanting to do something on the moon. So you're going to see a lot of effort being put into okay, let's go to the moon. Let's take some technologies with us. And let's see if we can actually do something with the regular of the moon. This is going to be the precursor that's going to set up for that long game of actually going out and getting asteroids and actually mining those asteroids for use in space resources to be used in space, and perhaps down the road resources to be brought actor Mark bouts with space cue.
