I know for example in Australia rainforest takes between several hundred to a thousand years to naturally regenerate thanks to the fire regimes etc. Is this also the case for the amazon? Can it regenerate "quickly" if left undisturbed?

I'm really confused. Why are there booths at an adult store?? Is it a try before you buy sort of thing?? O.o

I was about to ask, aren't there quite a few trees in the tropical Savannah around Darwin.. how would you avoid them? But then I realised you'd probably go along one of the roads.. Correct me if I'm wrong

Think about it like this instead: The largest open-cut mine in the world is 4x4x1 km in dimension, which is frighteningly large. This single mine has supplied copper for the past 100 years. If you do a simple estimate, the resources contained in the asteroids is the equivalent of 1.4 BILLION such mines, with an unparalleled purity and grade.

water, gold, iridium, silver, osmium, palladium, platinum, rhenium, rhodium, ruthenium, tungsten, iron, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, aluminium, and titanium. I think the the need won't be an economical one but rather an environmental one. Some metals on earth are becoming difficult to find and are less and less economical to mine. Certain rare earth metals can be had in abundance and will be useful for future (and current) technologies in power generation etc. There are benefits to be reaped on all fronts.
