Could astroid mining make space colonization possible?
If you’re worried that global warming is making the planet unlivable, don’t worry! There may be options out in space. One of the major hurdles for space colonization is materials––getting materials off of the earth is prohibitively expensive. But astroids might contain enough important minerals to use for electronics, fuel, and more to make space travel and colonization cheaper and easier. Of course, don’t be excited for yourself, but for your progeny because this stuff might not be happening for another hundred years.
