Getting rare materials from the ground into your phone is ugly. The mining industry is responsible for air and water pollution and the destruction of entire landscapes. But what if we could replace the mining industry on Earth with a clean process that can’t harm anyone? Well, we can. All we need to do is look up.

    we do actually do space mining... this means we will get resources that werent from earth.... that means that we will be gettign the stuff from space... which will add mass to earth... and if earth is getting fatter, this means it will have a bigger gravitational pull... thus, the moon will not end up so far away from earth... this means the moon will stay with us :D but if we do mine too much and bring more mass to earth and earth gets "obese" we will have to deal with more gravity, making us more tired, and it could pull the moon closer to earth. and if the earth gets SO FAT, the moon will crash into earth, obliterating us all and making earth even fatter! hmmmm....
