So...mercury, gold, silver, uranium, argon-40, helium-4, oxygen, methane, nitrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide on the Moon, but no life?

Who says no-one wants to go?


It is just very expensive.



Oh, and before someone pipes back with "Money doesn't mean anything. Governments can just print as much as they like," then tell me why I can't go to the Moon this way;

I sail out to a small unclaimed island in the Mid-Atlantic, and declare it the Kingdom of Freedonia.

I establish a national currency, the Freedonian Buck, and I create a Royal Reserve of ten billion Freedonian Dollars.

So now I can just buy a rocket from Space-X, right?

Anyone see the flaw in my plan?

Incidentally, at the current cost of spaceflight, if there were lumps of gold lying around on the lunar surface it still wouldn't be worth sending an astronaut down to pick them up.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35651308


All of these materials are not in neat little bars or in compressed bottles. It is in the form of ore. So we go to the Moon as you say, to get the raw ore. Then what? How do we get it back to Earth to use? Do we put processing plants in the Moon? Do we ship large quantities of ore back to Earth to refine it here? Either way, it would be very expensive. Do a little math, take some courses in economics. Figure out the final cost. It is doable to go to the Moon and mine all sorts of materials? Yes. Does it make any economic sense to do so? Not in the least. Not until the cost of mining those same minerals on Earth is comparable to mining them on the Moon.

Of course, you could always mine the asteroids....the Russian way.

Find a medium-sized nickle-iron body.

Fire nukes at it until you've managed to change the orbit.

Wait 200 years for the orbital intersection to occur.

After the dust has cleared and the firestorm has been put out, dig the metals you want out of the crater that used to be Remoteashellistan.

I mean bases. I'm sure there are bases on the Moon. I'm not sure who is in charge.

don't forget unobtanium

hehehe.

No life because no atmosphere but we should totally be up there mining moon-rocks. And helium. The US recently used all the worlds helium to make massive spy zephyrs, Helium could realistically replace the jet, if these cunts hadn't used it all.
I don't think so,

Moon's not the best place for light elements and volatiles. Better to scoop a comet, ice asteroid, mine Saturn's rings, etc.
