    Mining outside of the Earths atmosphere is a stupid idea, period !!!!! I had the space travel dream back in the late 1960's but we know so much more now about the dangers of it. Nasa is predicting the sun will be very active in the very near future and means death to any astronauts traveling to mars, one way trip it will be.

    Good idea!

    Traveling the distance from here to Mars would be impossible without a bit of social lubricant.

    You know what they say, "Time flies when you are having rum".

    It'd make more sense mining the asteroids for gold since there's less volume to have to dig up, massive metal bearing asteroids believed to be part of the core of an old planet have already been detected. Most of the heavy metals on planets sank deep underground, yet are easily accessible as asteroids. NASA is planning on sending a probe next year to explore it.

    If robots could actually move like this then a whole lot of folks are going to be out of work sometime in the not too distant future. Good luck with your hunts. Walt

    I'd be more interested in those black sands I see all over the place! Bet it's like beach mining up there! Now just need the water!

    The photos in the video certainy show gold colored material, but as we know...all the glitters isn't necessarily gold
    the planets all had the same source material when they formed. Mars could absolutely have gold it has many of the same minerals as earth.

    It also has/had volcano's and "Marsquakes"

    only been forged during the collision of two neutron stars. When neutron
    stars collide it's about the most powerful, violent and explosive event in the universe.

    Here is an outstanding article that explains it all, and in understandable language.

    That wonderful yellow metal we dig out of the ground traveled a long,
    long ways to get here.
    I think the point is it takes tectonics to concentrate the goodies into economic deposits. Creating stuff is for alchemists

    I knew a geologist (sorta famous) who spent our winters down on the bottom part of this marble. It was very expensive to do so, lucky for him the gov funded it. His claim was that if platinum ingots were stacked on the shores of Antarctica you couldn't afford to go get them

    DARN ! I saw that pile of "rocks" and needed some for back fill on a "area" that I worked awhile ago and had some "kids" use it to fill in holes. MAYBE it wasn't a good idea after all !!??
