About The Gold Rush
How is Gold Formed
The amount of gold in the earth has been constant since then. Gold was formed in the sense of being made from other elements.
Gold formed off the earth, but is now part of it. It sticks around because it doesn’t react with things on the earth like water and oxygen.
A gold atom will always stay as a gold atom unless we force it to accept some other subatomic particles under extreme conditions.

Gold, is used in space programmes as a radiation shield. Gold is such an effective reflector, it deflects the burning heat of the sun. Gold is essential to safe space travel.
