New law paves way for companies to mine asteroids
Mining companies pull valuable material out of the earth and sell it. That’s their job, and while there’s plenty of controversy over where, when, and to what extent corporations should be allowed to exploit our planet, human civilization wouldn’t be where it is today without mining. But what if companies didn’t have to actually dig into the Earth in order to harvest prized minerals? A new law in the EU is painting a picture of a future where mining companies look up rather than down in their search for new places to dig, and mining asteroids could be the new gold rush.
