Comments on: Space mining plan more than just sci-fi fantasy Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: SpaceLou Sun, 03 Jun 2012 21:32:24 +0000 I find it alarming that it takes billionaires to bring to the forefront an industry that has been in the planning for decades. All of a sudden it is a “credible” venture. There are many of us that have believed in space mining as a viable business and some of us have even been working at making it happen.

One thing to remember is that an introduction of $50billion worth of Platinum to the supply would greatly affect its price. I believe that more strategic minerals such as the REE (rare Earth elements) are a more viable mining option.
