Scientists have proposed to ban in the future mining of asteroids

According to Smithsonian Observatory senior astrophysicist Martin Elwes, humanity will soon

learn to launch spacecraft formining on other planets and asteroids. Already, many theories of the development of outer space imply this production, since this will significantly speed up the creation of colonies on other planets.

Scientists propose to ban the extraction of minerals on85% of the territory of the solar system. According to him, over the next 400 years, humanity can use 15% of all iron in the solar system, which will lead to a severe crisis.

In addition, while theorists cannot predict what will happen to the solar system if mass mining begins, whether the orbits of asteroids or comets will change.
