that's all really cool, but we aren't actually depleting our metals, they don't get used up, they just go to garbage dumps
so instead of space mining, it would be much more cost efficient and practical to go dumpster diving.
there's bound to be tons of gold and platinum and whatnot at your local landfill

Platinum, super cool material that is needed to build computers and electronics. Used to advance our technology into new and wonderful things, things that might one day give us sustainable energy, awesome robots, efficient clean fueled cars and over all better the planet... and people waste it on jewelry when you can't tell it apart from silver anyway.

The difference is that platnium almost does not tarnish. And people will always find a frivolous use for sometihng, so long as it's expensive.

mining asteroids is nowhere near feasible at the moment. the cost of transportation (there and back, including the mining equipment and extracted resources), plus the cost of actually mining the asteroid would be WAY more than what the resources are actually worth.

it's a good idea, but completely impractical

That was exactly what I was thinking as I read it. Us mining asteroids would be like using old style ships from the 1600's to mine a new country. The expense and effort just isn't worth it.

I believe the intent of the acrticle was to demonstrate the future need for such metals and to suggest asteriod mining as the answer to that problem again sometime in the future. In my opinion will be the near future as within the next 100 years

Another flaw in this is that if we bring in outside materials, it would eventually increase the mass of the Earth a considerable amount. Or, if we mine water from carbonaceous asteroids, it could affect the amount of water in our atmosphere and mess up the climate.

"increase the mass of the Earth a considerable amount"

lolno, that would not happen

Imagine the amount of jobs that would create o.o
