Thanks Doug,

In 20-50 years it's quite possible that that asteriod belt would be mined
extensively. I believe there are plenty of asteriods comprise of the
heavier elements. In time it will be probably more ergonomical to mine
these asteroid belts than on terranova, esp for the construction of space
stations and other planetary explorer vehicles.
