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.

Now I realise that monetary value has some basis in reality, I also can't help but think that just DOING the damn thing isn't actually as prohibitive as the costs might suggest, it's probably why China is making rounds in the space race as they aren't as burdened by questions of monetary cost.

    This is silly, why go looking for asteroids when we have the equivalent of an asteroid here on Earth? Africa is baren, desolate, filled with resources, and we can mine it as much as we want with impunity because apparently we don't have to care what happens to it once we're done with it. A note to the person angrily typing a reply, this is a satirical joke, don't take it so seriously.
