11:35:02 From Carlos Mariscal to Everyone : @Robert & Eric: making boron is expensive now. Is there a reason to think it would continue to be expensive in the future?

 

11:35:05 From Neil Manson to Everyone : I think whether or not boron actually is crucial, it might be good politically and publicity-wise to push for the creation of, as William Alba said, a Strategic Boron Reserve. It could get people thinking seriously about the resource requirements of space travel.
