Don't hold your breath, guys. One NASA exec has already resigned 2 months into his role.

Heres an old article about China and H-3. Who knows how far a long they are,but common sense and not being beholden to political parties and congressional oversight means they are likely proceeding like they know they can solve the issues. China isn't chasing the moon for PR. They got plans and are likely farther along than ours and can likely make them work.


Likely, likely, likely, and your conclusions about their motivations are based on what? Their long-term goals are to supplant the US as the dominant hegemon. Doing something only the US has done in history would have tremendous value in that regard.


As mentioned by DB Cowboy try and keep up.

LOL the chinese don't even like cheese LOL.

Id imagine they got a lot of technology in the works that nobody has a clue on.

Extraction from extraterrestrial sources
Materials on the Moon's surface contain helium-3 at concentrations between 1.4 and 15 ppb in sunlit areas,[52][53] and may contain concentrations as much as 50 ppb in permanently shadowed regions.[9] A number of people, starting with Gerald Kulcinski in 1986,[54] have proposed to explore the moon, mine lunar regolith and use the helium-3 for fusion. Because of the low concentrations of helium-3, any mining equipment would need to process extremely large amounts of regolith (over 150 tonnes of regolith to obtain one gram of helium 3),[55] and some proposals have suggested that helium-3 extraction be piggybacked onto a larger mining and development operation.[citation needed]

The primary objective of Indian Space Research Organisation's first lunar probe called Chandrayaan-I, launched on October 22, 2008, was reported in some sources to be mapping the Moon's surface for helium-3-containing minerals.[56] However, no such objective is mentioned in the project's official list of goals, although many of its scientific payloads have noted helium-3-related applications.[57][58]

Cosmochemist and geochemist Ouyang Ziyuan from the Chinese Academy of Sciences who is now in charge of the Chinese Lunar Exploration Program has already stated on many occasions that one of the main goals of the program would be the mining of helium-3, from which operation "each year, three space shuttle missions could bring enough fuel for all human beings across the world."[59] In January 2006, the Russian space company RKK Energiya announced that it considers lunar helium-3 a potential economic resource to be mined by 2020,[60] if funding can be found.[61][62]
Mining gas giants for helium-3 has also been proposed.[63] The British Interplanetary Society's hypothetical Project Daedalus interstellar probe design was fueled by helium-3 mines in the atmosphere of Jupiter, for example. Jupiter's high gravity makes this a less energetically favorable operation than extracting helium-3 from the other gas giants of the solar system, however.

. Not all authors feel the extraterrestrial extraction of helium-3 is feasible. Dwayne Day, writing in The Space Review, identifies some major obstacles to helium-3 extraction from extraterrestrial sources for use in fusion, and questions the feasibility of extraterrestrial extraction when compared to production on Earth.[64][64]

I literally watched an ad from NASA about their plan to colonize the moon like more than a week ago. This isnt very secret..

Those timelines are highly unrealistic when looking at delays in the whole industry and especially with track record of Nasa's contractors. I wonder if Boeing even needs to pay any fines per week/month/year/whatever of delays.
