In the bible it states that moses saw the whole round of the earth. Therefore during the middle ages and rennassiance era "People in Power" knew the world was indeed round considering religion went hand in hand with everyday life.

A spacefaring race could just rake in the Asteroids that contain gold. Metals, such as gold are the result of dying stars. The asteroid belt must be full of gold.

Eros is believed to have been formed from the wreckage of a collision with a larger body. Its composition appears to be similar to the stony meteorites that frequently fall to Earth. BBC 5Live investigates the Torino Scale, a Richter Scale for meteorites That means Eros is a goldmine in space, as well as a platinum mine, a zinc mine and many more minerals besides. If Eros is typical of stony meteorites, then it contains about 3% metal. With the known abundance's of metals in meteorites, even a very cautious estimate suggests 20,000 million tonnes of aluminium along with similar amounts of gold, platinum and other rarer metals.
