(ORDO NEWS) — Astrophysicists are seriously considering the idea of creating a base inside a large asteroid.
Sounds like fantasy, right?
Such a base could become a hub for off- Earth mining , which is not only beneficial from an economic point of view, but also useful for solving a number of environmental problems.
Astrophysicists from the University of Vienna even carried out calculations to implement the plan and came to the conclusion that this is quite feasible.
It is important to note that the centrifugal force of the asteroid will provide the colonists with a comfortable environment due to natural gravity, and this will make it much easier to complete the tasks.
Large asteroids are so saturated with resources that the average income from one such extraction will be trillions of dollars, which means that such a mission will not only pay for itself, but also allow organizing new ones.
In addition, our planet could deserve a break from the barbaric devastation by people.
If we want to colonize other planets, then it would be wise to gain experience in building such bases.
