  • In Sudbury, in the Merensky Reef of South Africa, and in Montana, we are already obtaining hundreds of billions of dollars worth of asteroidal resources from impacts here on the earth and our own computer modeling has shown that the impactors on the Moon are still there.

  • Go and take a look there because there's some new research where people have a lot of these places where there is chemical evidence for water, the reason they know that is that impactors have pummeled Mars and excavated through the lava that covers a lot of Mars, excavated deep down and found these chemical signatures of water-altered minerals.

  • And yes, Earth has these oceans, it may be that Mars never had oceans, that it was just small areas where maybe it melted the ice where these impactors came, and there was a wonderful habitat for a short time.

  • Civil defense and kinetic impactors are probably the closest to readiness, but even these require additional study prior to reliance on them.
