Is there anything that could save mankind from its self-inflicted doom and destruction? According to this infographic designed by Neo Mammalian Studios for XMetallurgist, asteroid mining is the solution we need to be looking for.
Planetary Resources are developing the Leo telescope which will scan space objects such as asteroids to determine their value and plan for future mining missions. The chart states that, potentially, "one small asteroid would provide the Earth with enough metal for decades," meaning more natural resources to fuel and expand future space exploration.
Considering how fast we are currently burning through our natural resources here on earth, missions to mine asteroids for these kinds of useful materials could truly be the way we can save mankind from a very bleak future.
