(INTELLIHUB) — During a June 20 podcast of the Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan himself, jokingly suggested that “we need to make a war on asteroids […] as long as it’s profitable.” And he may be right.

Although, while asteroids can contain precious minerals and resources, some of which can’t be found on Earth, they can also be devastating when they strike the planet.

Believe it or not, downed meteorites are worth up to $10,000 per pound on the open market, But what would they be worth if they were mined in space?

Please watch the podcast segment posted above.
