That in turn provides sufficient time to achieve the primary goal: to enable Earth's biodiversity to colonize the solar system, the galaxy and eventually the universe, using the mirror swarm to power early phases of the expansion.
It is essential that off-earth development benefits life, not individuals, nations, habitats or ideologies. Ethical development is a core consideration of everything Mirrorswarm plans or achieves.
We have recognized that conventional mining is not an option, and that there is a limiting unsolved problem relating to the potential destruction of Mercury's ultra-low vacuum. The lack of atmosphere is an essential aspect of our selected refining and construction process.
