  • If that's the case then I'd be more concerned about future humans who went out to find it again.
  • "“Previously launching 1kg of materials from earth to space was around $US20,000 ($25,100) plus,” Professor Saydam told Stockhead. “Elon Musk dropped this to less than $US4000 and he says he will drop it to less than $US100. “So it’s all about cost — mining is all about cost.... Falcon Heavy is the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two, with the ability to lift more than twice the payload of the next vehicle, at one-third the cost. Transporting bigger equipment into space means increased production .... NASA is planning a mission to Mars in 2032 and the initial focus will be on water-extraction to support life and to be used as fuel. “If we want to colonise off-Earth we need to extract water and we need to extract regolith to make our homes in space,” Mr Saydam said. “The first mining operation will be water extraction from asteroids or the moon.”.... The European Space Agency wants to establish a colony on the moon within the next five to 10 years."" https://www.businessinsider.com.au/elon-musk-starman-mine-planets-2018-2
