What do you thinks gonna happen if we start mining(robbing) the moon of it's resources? The moon plays a delicate role on the earth and who lives on it. We would be destroying ourselves over time.
posted by Mephorium........Helium 3. The moon contains about 1 million tons of it and its estimated value is $4,000,000,000,000,000.00 When we run out of oil, we are going to need an alternative energy source. Nonpolluting nuclear energy is the way to go. (By the way 1 million tons of helium 3 could power the world for thousands of years.)

My first thought would be that removing materials from the moon would not expidite the departure of the moon. Because gravity (the glue) I believe is a function of mass (moon mass + earth mass = X glue) we would simple be subtracting mass from the moon, but increasing the earth's mass by an equal amount.
Right or wrong... ?
