The Future of Gold
Some scientists are looking to the heavens to find more gold. In 1998, the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) spacecraft passed close to the asteroid Eros and sent back data indicating that the potato-shaped space rock was a vast warehouse of metals. If Eros is typical of stony meteorites that crash to Earth, then it contains about 3 percent metal. Given the dimensions of the asteroid, NASA scientists estimate that Eros may house 20 billion tons (18.1 billion metric tons) of gold and similar amounts of other metals, such as aluminum and platinum [source: BBC News].
