Getting rare materials from the ground into your phone is ugly. The mining industry is responsible for air and water pollution and the destruction of entire landscapes. But what if we could replace the mining industry on Earth with a clean process that can’t harm anyone? Well, we can. All we need to do is look up.

    A video like this gives me so much hope for the future... for the few minutes it's running and I forget what kind of world we actually live in. Most people in power are old people, who lacks any and all vision for the future. They're just thinking about lining their own pockets for the short amount of time they've got left alive :-( I have lost all faith in humanity.

      @Monkey D Luffy Well, its complicated. Meteoroids are the size of pebbles, and most will burn up in the atmosphere. Asteroids are huge, smaller than planets, but huge. The Dinosaurs extinction was caused by a large asteroid, so its safe to say we're not bring asteroids to Earth. The moon has been getting bombarded with asteroids and meteoroids for its whole life, so Its mineral rich, but we don't wanna mine the moon, as the Moon is essential for life on Earth.

    • Monkey D Luffy

      Monkey D Luffy

      9 dagen geleden

      @Kanha the third since asteroids are very mineral rich, even a 1 or 2 meter asteroid should contain a lot of minerals. If we someone encapsulate a few of these small Astroids and brought them back the same way we bring people back from space, wouldn’t that work? It may not be very efficient but it would certainly be interesting to see.
