"We should be talking about people visiting Mars and mining the asteroids and setting up a city on the moon....."

We should be mining the Moon, especially the poles. There are likely cubic kilometers of water at the poles. That could be used for nuclear thermal rockets to travel the solar system. It also could be used to fuel the craft to bring back He3 mined from the Moon. The He3 comes from the solar wind, and should be an excellent fuel for nuclear fusion.


Yes, there is much that can be done with the trillions currently being spent for war, defense and the deficits. It just takes courage and vision to make it happen.

In due time...
