Finding Oil on another planet is one thing, but how do you suggest transporting it back to earth? And how will it be cost efficient in any way?
Theres a few billion barrels of oil being pumped around the globe and used every year. How the hell is anyone gona be able to transport that kind of
quantity's from another plannet?
Transporting the oil by itself, if posible, would be a rather hazardous thing to do too.
You would have to transport it in massive quantity's and the ships would need to be 1000000% failproof. What would happen if just 1 supertanker sized
spaceship filled with oil broke up and spilled its cargo in the atmosphere?
Then the environmental aspect.
Every planet has a ballance and natural cycles that are in a ballance, over the last 100 years we already pulled this planet out of that ballance,
what would happen if we brought non native fosilized fuel from another planet here? We would add even more CO2 to the system, for wich the planet
never had and never will have a way to react to.
This is in every posible aspect a non feasable and dumb idea to do imho.
