Replying to nobody in particular.. :-"

”Given the asteroid’s size, its metal content could be worth $10,000 quadrillion ($10,000,000,000,000,000,000), or about 10,000 times the global economy as of 2019”.

..and who would be the beneficiary of the meteorite and therefore that sum of potential income?

Would it belong to the planet, and then funds distributed according to geographical need of individual populaces?

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something at some point in time.. Huh! - MagsJ
You’re suggestions and I, just simply don’t mix.. like oil on water, or a really bad DJ - MagsJ

Well... taxpayers paid for this mission. It should belong to all of them equally.
