I agree! So do some of the richest people on the planet.
Planetary Resources and another less funded company DSI are launching ventures to mine Asteroids. Imagine hitting on an Asteroid that is composed of gold and Platinum among other heavier metals?
We don't **** where we eat, why should we mine where we live?
Set up bases on the moon, and the moons of the gas giants and mine the **** out of them!
