Resources beyond imagination

Chris Evans

December 5, 2013

As we venture beyond the earth and the solar system we can expect to find more resources to power our economies here on earth. We have to decide who can profit from the mining operations of these resources, governments or private companies? Allowing the exploitation of space resources will help grow our civilizations economies and we wont have to exhaust the earths resources. We will discover alien life thats for sure, as the chances for carbon life are quite high and the amount of planets that can support life will be quite high too, once we figure out better ways of detecting earth like worlds.

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.
