The road to space mining will be a rocky one (pun intended).

The sooner we take the first step, the sooner we'll realise our space fairing dreams.

It will always be 'too expensive' or 'not comercially viable' until we get up there and make it cheaper. Good on them for their foresight and imagination. Here's hoping it's not a pink elephant.

Spot on Snowy, the only way for something to become cheaper is to commercialise it.

Space is starting to go that way at last and is slowly coming out of being the sole preserve of governments, hopefully we can start to see some big strides made in the near future.

There's no adverts on that page. Still don't see why we're not allowed to see it.

And is completely correct, now that space is starting to commercialese I suspect we will start to see more raprid progress over the next 2 - 3 decades due to competition, how long to you think that the big aviation compaines will sit back and allow the upstarts to build a lead over them in this arena!!
