    Would make gold worthless not the other way around. It may be worth that much in space but flood the gold market and it will tank. IMO

    I agree with trdking on this - gold would be about worth the value of the same weight as iron ore.....

    Gone were the days of golden standards.....

    So let's suppose a huge asteroid like this fell out of the sky and landed in someone's backyard. Say the government knew about it. Question is, would they let you keep it or would they come up with some excuse why it's not really yours or there's some law against it being yours, etc. I'm just throwing a hypothetical out there...no need to post about how an asteroid would never fall from the sky or things like that.

    Noooooo, let's just say it was just big enough to fit in your back yard. Not big enough to wipe out half the planet. Then what?

    At the speed it would hit good luck to you and your entire neighborhood. But to answer your question you do not own it. The government would take it.

    Doesn't have a clue about economics.
    It would not make all humans billionaires.
    Anytime you flood the market it crashes the market.
    Golds rarely or difficulty to acquire is exactly what makes it worth what it is.
    And in reality even that is BS because the market is manipulated by the large banks just like diamonds are manipulated by the Beers ... If it was not for them diamonds would be worth about the same as quartz.

    What comes to mind to myself is the cost and physics behind mining gold on an asteroid. I don't understand how the cost to retrieve the minerals would not out weight the return dramatically. Then, lets say you do get onto this asteroid, how do you return to earth with tons of gold, it's extremely heavy. I would imagine the process would require some extreme engineering to make possible if possible at all within a profit margin..

    "If brought to Earth, the asteroid can make everyone billionaires." This line just makes me laugh on so many levels..

    Like I said SASSIEST EVER!!!!!

    also gold and diamonds do not share "value" for the same reason.

    Gold has very unique uses in many fields. On top of its value as a Wampum of some sort.

    Dismissing the death and what not, if it fell out in your field why would it not belong to you? I'm guessing the gov would try to claim it but I think at best they could only tax you for the worth.
