Well, in tiny amounts.  JAXA is finding interesting things in the asteroid gravel they brought back to Earth.  I believe this may be the growth industry of the second half of this century.

  3. Asteroid mining gets a lot of attention from the members of the institute where I work.
    And Beltawalla back at ya, ke? Between this week’s 5th season Expanse finale, and Lang Belta dropping on one of my favorite modeling blog, I might just be forced to move that Fantastic Plastic Rocinante out of the stash and on to the bench.

  5. resin, minimal decals (graphics only, no stripes or textures) for either Rocinante or Tachi, 1/144 scale. FP also makes a Razorback kit.
