    We are going to harvest resources from space?  Have you ever done the math on what it would take to put an earth-mover on the moon?

    Oh, and reducing lift costs is a meaningless statistic.  The only one that is important is how much energy does it require to get something out of earth's gravitational pull and that hasn't changed a bit.  

    Someone obviously watched too many Jetson episodes.

    And yes, I was a space nut.  Most of the big action—Gemini to Apollo 13 happened when I was a teenager who loved fancy machinery and the space program had the best.
