Re: 2nd Asteroid prospecting company to start prospecting in 2015
Since we're talking about future visions - the solar system and, then, the galaxy will NOT be colonized by the majority of mankind. Indeed, 99% of its descendants will remain right here, on Earth, until it rots away. Much like the ~150 humans that left Africa not so long ago, only 1% of humanity will inherit the skies.
Um, duh? Getting the majority of 9 billion off the planet would be quite a trick. I have no doubt though that one day, should some of us get off this mudball in a meaningful way, that that 9 billion will become a minority.
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...
