Increase NASA funding. Could be the best investment ever!


It sounds a little like Star Trek, but there is much to be gained in space besides the prestige of beating “the Russians” or beating “the Chinese.” There is a vast amount of wealth out there!

Mining asteroids sounds pretty “far out there” (pun intended). The asteroid belt lies between Mars and Jupiter. The asteroids contain an almost unfathomable amount of resources. The asteroid ‘Davida’ has a resource value estimated to be somewhere around 27 quintillion (26,990,000,000,000,000,000) U.S. dollars – that’s QUINTILLIONS not TRILLIONS. That’s 6 more zeros after “trillion.” That’s a great neighborhood to “somewhere around.” We just need to figure out how to bring its wealth back to Earth.

    This kind of puts a knife into the idea that the earth has limited resources (ie, peak oil). We have the universe for resources.

    Enable the innovators, the competent, the entrepreneurs to do this, not a bunch of bureaucrats and governmental drones.
