Wonderful images!. But in your opinion, just how "true" or false images?

hey everyone, please forgive my laziness, didn't read the whole thread

any news of He3 mining experiments as part of the missions ?

posted on Apr, 19 2011 @ 07:18 AM
Since H3 is not used in any way other than minor experiments, your answer is no. Those H3 power plants only exist in theories. That’s a far cry from paper plans or even a prototype.

Basically there is nothing on the Moon that we need now or in the foreseeable future.

In fact a base on the moon would give the army the best advantage, they would have every country in the world under their feet. they would just have to wait until the earth's rotation brings the country of choice right under. Then they could just drop a bomb from the moon...

By the way are any of you members
they are looking for a few good men...

It would be good for retaliatory strikes.

Any enemy that knows about it would have to launch at the moon first to get your lunar sites and that is a nice 'heads-up'.

*Also, the moon doesn't have to be lined up properly, adjustments can be made in transit to make the rocket # the right places

are you saying they are conducting minor He3 experiments on these missions ? that would seem to indicate they are exploring turning theory into practice

hardly nothing if that is the case

Landing anyone in the moon for India will into come before 2025, Once the GSLV rocket is built and well tested with home made cryogenic engine and the avatar Hyper plane finally comes online, things should start shaping up pretty well...

Having a base on the moon can only happen if its a combined effort from several countries without hesitation of TOT...

Can't wait for such a mission to happen again.

NASA is planning on a mission to take off in 2020 and land on jupiters moon named Europa.
There is an ocean on this moon under its icy surface. has very interesting articles on this.

I'm sorry but they were just dreams.
They have no probe.
They have no designs for a probe.
They have no funding for this mission.

I think the future of mans moon missions are private ventures...subsidised of course by governments money.

"He explained how private companies can work in conjunction with major space exploration programs to make significant profits. NASA will pay upfront the $100 million needed for his company’s trip to the moon, in exchange for help with a water exploration project. Once on the moon, the company is then free to take contracts from any group interested in space exploration, allowing for gains of over $170 million — a $70 million dollar profit after costs.

And with cost-cutting exercises slashing government budgets, the opportunities for private companies to get in on the action are growing.

"If you go back to the early 2000s, NASA had a plan for eight lunar exploration missions at $1 billion each," Ranger continued. "We are doing this for sub $100 million, so we can really dramatically save for them."

"And then we open up—there are a lot of other commercial entities that want to do low gravity experimental research, other experiments from the moon because of its unique characteristics. So we can meet both sets of requirements very cheaply, and therefore make quite a large profit," he said."

Now were talking...going to the moon, not because its there, but because there is money to be made by doing it!
And no one dissagrees I am sure that private companies can do it sooooo much cheaper than governments, and the governments can still kick in some to push the new private sector investments forward.

And we have to get there ASAP before the space NAZIs attack!!!!

Someone should organise some kind of public international moon colonisation committee. a senior and youth council with the aim to promote moon colonisation and campaign for volunteering to live on the moon so becoming a moon colonist can be open to the public.

That would be awesome.
Especially with the diversity of races. It would also enabe people from countries without space programs to participate.

Sound cool or what

Yes it does. I still hold out hope that private industry will develop truly cheap access to space. It will open a door to inovation and invention the likes of which has never been seen. Combining that with the energy and adventurousness of youth... The mind boggles!

How many of us are still alive who witnessed that special day in July?
once we ,,the actuall witness of this event are gone,dead,,past way,,
That very Special Event,, will die with us,,,
from what i read,,so it seems,
10yrs from now
it will be somehow "proven to the masses" as having been a " Myth of the American ",,culture,,
or some such non-sencical think, so rampent today.
Kinda reminds me of the first " Planet of the Apes ",,
the hiding of the truth part,,
not the "Damn YOU! " part,
or the "take your filthy stinking, hands off of me, ,,,,
just the,,
the hiding of the truth part,

A New Element called Helium3 from Apollo moon rocks is why there is now a new worldwide race to the moon.

Helium3 is created in abundance from the Sun, but burns up in the atmosphere. The dust of the moon is estimated to be covered all over by Helium3.

Helium3 is a Non Radioacive Fuel to use in Nuclear Reactors. No harmful radiation is expected to be released.

It will change the entire energy structure of the entire world.

Whoever gets there first, again, will own the business for a long time.

There is already a construction company in Arkansas USA that has plans on the blueprints to put excavators on the Moon to begin surface mining and bring this element back to Earth to produce non radioactive nuclear energy.

The Race to Mars and the rest of the Solar System are now secondary accomplishments to getting back to the moon.

Another Step Into The Future

A Lunar Base is essential to future space exploration. When they set up the Lunar Base, and they will, it will be another stepping stone into the future. As everyone knows, to get a rocket off of Earth, we have to break the atmosphere. This takes a tremendous amount of fuel. With the base on the Moon, we won't have to break atmosphere, and will save mass amounts of fuel, but by then, we might not be using rocket fuel, instead, we'll most likely be using Ion Propulsion. Just thought I'd share, because I find this newer propulsion fascinating.

Details About Ion Propulsion From NASA

(I just joined ATS so sorry if I seem out of place). Just think... We are making history as we speak and for all we know, one of us could be in the history books. I hope one day to further understand the idea of humanity colonizing other worlds. We need to do it. A well known man (I don't remember his name) once said "Earth is the cradle of humanity, but like any child we cannot stay in the cradle forever.

I will have to disagree with your outlook on history making.

It seems that all of that has taken a backseat to war with people of a different. Culture.

History making is having the "balls" to say screw it and go explore something with one's own eyes.

As a nation we have lost our space exploration heritage and traded it in for war and Facebook. Everybody seems to be to concerned about what everybody thinks about them to really understand what exploration is all about.

I for one am totally bummed out that NASA does not have a ship to fly.
