The Moon: Natural Platform for Asteroid Mining, Detection, Deflection

Space capitalism: brought to you by the folks who makes everything bad sound good: Forbes. As I’ve noted before, some of the best writing about future space exploration is coming out of Forbes magazine. And this reminds me of the fact that we may end up getting a space elevator on the moon before our own planet – that’s been the ‘buzz’ about space elevators now for a few weeks. This might also make it easier to put space elevators on Mars (for what purposes I do not know, perhaps more mining or possible colonization).
