"In particular, the asteroid Amun, a mountain of natural stainless steel
mixed with
             precious metals, contains 30 times as much metal as humans
have mined and
             processed throughout history, Lewis said. The smallest of
dozens of known
             metallic asteroids, it would be worth at least an estimated
$20 trillion based on
             current market prices. "
