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.

    Humans will start space mining with small meteorites and stuff. Since their size will be small, the rocket attached to the meteorite will make a re entry to earth atmosphere and make a slow landing in the ocean. This would be like the new "goldr ush" not just for the "US" but for the every country which has space companies and it will boost the space travel technology so much in the coming 20 -30 years.

    Hi, I am novice in this topic but have doubt that extra material (weight) from outside earth could have adverse effects on earth's rotation or not? I understand that it would be very minute in the beginning (when they start importing precious elements, but with time it may become significant, so why to play with nature?). Please let me know if I am wrong as I do not have much information about these topics.
