Re: Don't forget the fate of early Earth colonists

Some of the asteroids have valuable metals. Getting a viable settlement at L4 or L5 would be a great stepping stone to exploration. I believe that enough "stuff" could be found in space or the moon to cut dependencies on earth.

Earth has lots of matter but some energy problems. Space has lots of energy but not a lot of useful matter.
