Again, relevant, yes?
Very marginally relevant, yes.

And Paul451 has a point. Dumping giant articles on people and saying "that refutes you" isn't helpful. You have an agenda, everyone knows it... it's right in your user ID. That's fine. But don't let your agenda color how you participate here. I could have PMed this but PMs don't do much good with certain classes of user.

Linking one's own short conference talk, with highlighted example, is a fair way to make an uncontroversial point.  Emphasis on uncontroversial.  One shouldn't belabor such things.

No it isn't  Just extract the bit that makes the point, quote it, and then provide the link so people can follow up.

This is off topic. You should stop and let the mod have the last word because arguing isn't making you look good.

I'm not sure in 6 pages of this thread whether the report in question has actually been posted. I've been sitting on it for a while but only just got round to reading. It's a relatively OK synthesis of trends and developments in the space industry (and good that Goldman are interested in space), although an in-depth business case of asteroid mining it is not.

See attachment below.

Cheers.

I've come across this before, but a nice infographic to keep around here too

Interesting that they are predicting a severe silver shortage...
