or some social calamity caused  by some social engineer.
Sorry for thinking self-preserving and self-protection is a good thing.

By the Way, the current costs of extracting gold from the ground is 
around 1200 US$ or something like this. Add the risk to be nationalized 
or taxed. Not a surprise mining shares for precious metal miners are so low.

To have immortality (or very long life spans) we need resources to 
support the research. Rich people have them and more rich people is out 
there, more wealth they have (inherited or produced), more is probable 
one of the or more will finance the research of rejuvenating 
technologyes and likes.

Space is where resources are plenty and untapped and where government 
have difficult to reach and control.
