I was just listening to ATS mix show 5 John Lear Fianle (part 2). Mr Lear mentioned Helium-3 and America going to the Moon looking for this source of power, i got intreged so started research.

The life of Helium starts off at the sun, from here it passes through space, and then cosmic rays hit it and turn Helium into what we knwo as Helium-3. Our Magnetic Feild and our Atmosphere repel Helium-3 and it goes to the Moon.

The reason we need Helium-3 is because we carnt make our Fusion reactors keep up witht he required power to create fusion power, Helium-3 is not a vast mineral on the Moon, helium-3 is in many places but Helium-4 covers alot more ground than -3, so finding -3 and leaving -4 will eb harder than peopel think.

Picture of a rock from the moon with traces of Helium-3 in it.

Space race may be a good way to put this for finacial Values, 220 pounds of Helium-3 would have a value of around $141 million.

Because the concentration of helium-3 is extremely low, it would be necessary to process large amounts of rock and soil to isolate the material, but wouldnt decreasing the mass of the Moon directly efect our tides ? With the rising levels of the Oceans due to global warming effecting the Moons gravitional pull may be the final straw and cause flooding on earth on a massive scale.

Since Helium-3 is getting repelled by us does that mean that, Mars, Saturn, Titan and other Moon's, Planets and astroids could have this precious mineral on it ?

The idea of bases and mining sites on the Moon are not werid for this site, go to John Lears section of ATS to read about them. elium-3 could be our saviour, or Helium-3 could finsh us off, i can see many wars happenign for this owe or mineral, what ever term is used for helium-3.

Hope youve enjoyed the read.

Take Care, Vix

What exactly does Helium-3 do?

MBF: helium 3 is of potential use in fusion reactors, assuming that we can ever make fusion work.

Vixion: Check out the link here

There was a similar story in my newspaper recently, and it mentioned that one reason Russia wants to go to the moon is for helium 3.

Here is the originial ATS thread of this topic.

Also a news article about H3 from May 2007 talking about how this new potential fuel may spark a new space race to conquer the moon.
