A less Earth-centric economy.

Awhile back, I posted half-jokingly about the possibility of space travel to gather materials for production of goods. I think it would make the economy less confined to the resources of Earth alone. That kind of supply shock could help us out a lot.

I mention this because today I saw this L.A. Times interview with a man whose company is working on building robots to mine the moon for resources. It sounds pretty cool.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
