The US space agency, NASA, plans to carry out a mission on a large asteroid in the solar system, containing huge amounts of precious metals such as gold and platinum.
NASA pointed out that the quantities of precious metals on the "Saiki 16" asteroid are enough to blow the world economy from its father, according to the British "Express" newspaper.
The first mission of NASA is scheduled for the summer of 2022, with the spaceship reaching the asteroid by 2026.
The "Saeki 16" asteroid is one of the 10 largest asteroids in the asteroid belt and has a diameter of over 200 kilometers and was discovered in 1852.
The asteroid is located in an area between the orbits of the planets Mars and Jupiter, which is believed to form during the Great Collision during the formation of the solar system.
According to The Sun, the asteroid contains gold, platinum, iron and nickel, worth about $ 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 or $ 10 billion, and in the language of the figures, "$ 10 billion".
"The exploitation of minerals" on the planet and on asteroids represents an ambitious plan expressed by some scientists, with speculation that the first person to successfully exploit the mineral mines on them will become the first trillionary on earth.
If scientists manage to exploit the precious metal mines on this asteroid and bring them to the ground for the purpose of marketing, this means that their prices on the ground will decrease very significantly, and thus destroy the global economy, because it will exceed much of this economy can handle, "Oil prices" on the Internet.
The global economy is estimated at 76 trillion dollars.
