Because they don't see what can be done with it.  There are all kinds of
far-out visions promoted - but they are very expensive, with little near-turn
returns, and smaller stuff keeps getting glossed over.  Launching a single
probe for under $1 million is not currently possible, making it very hard to
start stuff in space.

Meanwhile, $1 million can easily fund another dotcom startup that may
actually deliver value to many, and you don't need a lot of people to get
one going.

This is why I came up with that asteroid mining plan.
