people who think asteroid mining will forward human spaceflight are funny.
no, companies that manage to make it profitable will completely automate it, because operating costs for humans in space are, ahem, astronomical.
it’ll probably be cheaper for them to scrap malfunctioning mining equipment than send numans up to fix it.
I don't know whether "numans" is a typo or an implication that companies will also create modified humans that are cheaper to send to space.
