We are not going to be foreseeable mining asteroids for a while through. What are the people who require education, help and housing supposed to do in
the meantime, remain uneducated while starving and freezing to death?
Like i said space exploration is important for our future but not at the expense of other more important factors. We need to get off our knees as a
species and learn to walk before we can fly away.
As to mining asteroids, i suppose it has its merit but i think we should start with the Moon considering all that Titanium and Helium 3 apparently in
abundance up there and closer than the asteroids.
Also any profits to be had in that department are lightly to be snapped up by the corporations and business responsible for the projects. The poor
will be lucky to see a dime this side of the century.
