Mining the space range

This week we talked about scram mining, mining revenue politics and growing marijuana in abandoned old mines, but what of the future of mining? Mashable reports that a group of very wealthy, eccentric (which is rich person for “crazy”) entrepreneurs and adventurers are planning to mine asteroids. Oh, they’ve got a plan alright.

I think it’s so great that children who live on these asteroids will have the option of staying close to home, reassuring their alien parents that the lives they lived are meaningful. It is now imperative that the legislature pass laws streamlining the laws of physics, hastening the job creation these asteroid mines would represent.
