    Ever since reading the Lensman series and Kimbal Kinnison's "stint" as a miner in his quest to get a line on the Boskone leadership, I've always wondered when something like that (the mining) would start catching people's attention here on Earth.

    Tripped across this today in my news feed:

    Infographic: There's Big Money to Be Made in Asteroid Mining

    Granted, with today's technology it's not really feasible yet, but there's a shit ton of money floating around out there!

    Makes me wish I was 40 years younger so I could get in on the ground floor with something like that. Whoever gets there first is gonna make a bloody killing.

    CJ Cherryh's universe was all about mining. Science Fiction today, reality tomorrow.

    Love me some CJ Cherryh Alliance/Union stories.

    I knew there was chemistry with you, Brian, for a reason. :)

    I loved the Chanur and Foreigner stuff, too. Somebody needs to make a movie out of Downbelow Station.
