Moon Mines: Visionary or Senseless?

National Space Society Blog h/t Instapundit


  1. a vigorous lunar mining system could be part of a system to deliver energy to Earth, build large structures in space, and even provide radiation protection, water and oxygen to those who want to spend significant time in orbit.
  2.  the evidence suggests that reorienting our space program to support commercialization and industrialization of space, as opposed to 100% government missions, may produce far greater results at much less cost.
  3.  Lunar mining could be a major component of such space industrialization.

I'd say this is just the beginning of what it could do.
