While these locations would be in permanently shadowed deep craters and would be exceedingly cold, they do in fact contain the largest amounts of water ice that can be found on the Moon (Tate 2013). “Scientists think that water might be responsible for the fluffy dirt at the Moon’s poles.

Likewise, today’s asteroids are the bits and pieces left over from the initial agglomeration of the inner planets that include Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. 6 billion years ago. If we wish to know the composition of the primordial mixture from which the planets formed, then we must determine the chemical constituents of the ­leftover debris from this formation process—the comets and asteroids. While some near-Earth asteroids may pose significant danger to life on Earth because they may pass close to our planet and could cause tremendous devastation if in fact there was impact, these objects, however, could be very lucrative for the second division’s operations because their close proximity makes their mineral wealth more easily accessible (JPL 2014).

In any event, such language or intent will not matter for the company because it will have such a large security preponderance in space that no other entity or nation will be able to interfere anyways. Regardless of any legislation or treaties that any politicians may produce, the second division could move forward with the exploitation of all the precious metals that are found in asteroids, including “platinum, rhodium, iridium, rhenium, osmium, ruthenium, palladium, germanium and gold” (Thomas 2013).
