Mining The Moon?

Post by Rbjustme on Sun Jan 24, 2016 6:52 pm

The race is on to mine the minerals on the moon. A company based in California is in the process of developing the technology to do this, I wonder how many other countries, ie Russia, China etc are doing the same thing unannounced? An interesting point here is that they intend to use the ice in the landing zone and convert it to fuel for the transfer of the cargo back to earth.

A company in Western Australia developed similar technology some years ago to allow cars to run on water, but it was squashed. The oil companies bought the technology and squashed it as far as I am concerned, however, I have no proof of this, only from what I have read in the past, and putting 2+2 to equal 4.

Why would someone mine the moon? There are things we need to know about the moon before mining it!

Greed, money and power JTS that's why, apparently it is rich in minerals. You can read a little more detail about this on the link below.

Apparently they are sending the lander up there this year, so it's not far away at all. Shock

That's the mentality of a Billionaire for you, he's running the project.
