Getting rare materials from the ground into your phone is ugly. The mining industry is responsible for air and water pollution and the destruction of entire landscapes. But what if we could replace the mining industry on Earth with a clean process that can’t harm anyone? Well, we can. All we need to do is look up.

    Why not send rockets to nudge the smaller asteroids to crash on the moon and set up a large facility to go and mine the craters on the moons surface? Then you can store tons of metals on the surface and set up a system to slowly transfer that storage.

    Question. do you have to remove weight from the planet if you want to add mass from space? I get in little numbers, it shouldn't matter, but how much will the world change if we add trillions of pounds to it from mining ore in space. Would that start to affect the planet's gravity, or pull on nearby celestial bodies?

    we do actually do space mining... this means we will get resources that werent from earth.... that means that we will be gettign the stuff from space... which will add mass to earth... and if earth is getting fatter, this means it will have a bigger gravitational pull... thus, the moon will not end up so far away from earth... this means the moon will stay with us :D
    but if we do mine too much and bring more mass to earth and earth gets "obese" we will have to deal with more gravity, making us more tired, and it could pull the moon closer to earth. and if the earth gets SO FAT, the moon will crash into earth, obliterating us all and making earth even fatter!
