Over a year ago, we reported that the new moon race isn't about space exploration?it's all about the precious Helium 3 fuel lying on the moon's surface. Now major media outlets are beginning to report this story.
In the website MSNBC.com, Alan Boyle quotes geologist and astronaut Harrison Schmitt, who took part in the 1972 Apollo 17 mission, as saying that "Helium-3 as a potential fuel for future fusion reactors. That particular isotope of helium appears to be abundant on the moon." It's a gift just waiting for the taking?let's just hope that we don't now take our earth-bound wars over land out into space.
