I would like to see off-world mineral exploration take off. It should presede any mining plans on our Moon, all planets or asteroids. My interests are in the off-world mineral exploraton systems necessary to drive the birth of this industry. All other missions beyond will receive diminishing funds, or charity in future years. Someone paying up front will expect tangible returns.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
