Ummm space faring nations?


Well no worries... Space Command will handle them... the Space NAVY is stronger than you think


You mean, when those interests are at stake, to hell with potential international agreements on handling moon as a resource for humanity?

Seems India's former President Abdul Kalam was right when he said "I believe that the moon cannot be left to a few countries."

Well let's look at the US track record of NOT doing what is in it's best interest.... errr nah no need to rehash that


Lets look at the bottom line... HE3

In their 1988 paper, Kulcinski, et al., estimate a total of 1,100,000 metric tonnes of He3 have been deposited by the solar wind in the lunar regolith. Since the regolith has been stirred up by collisions with meteorites, we'll probably find He3 down to depths of several meters.

That amount of He3 would produce approximately 20,000 terra-watt years of thermal energy, about 10 times the amount if we burned all the fossil fuels on Earth. without the pollution. Another way to state it, 25 tons would power the United States for 1 year, which is about the maximum size of the payload of a Space Shuttle

It has been estimated that helium 3 would have a cash value of $5.7 billion a ton in terms of its current energy equivalent to oil at $40 per barrel oil. Thats 142.5 BILLION per Shuttle load...

US PATENT 5,092,545

Method of Delivering Lunar Generated Fluid
to Earth Orbit Using an External Tank

Publication number: US5092545
Publication date: 1992-03-03
Inventor: BUTTERFIELD ANSEL J (US); GOSLEE JOHN W (US)
Applicant: NASA (US)

ABSTRACT


A method and apparatus are provided for delivering lunar generated fluid to Earth orbit from lunar orbit. Transport takes place in an external tank of a shuttle which has been suitably outfitted in Earth orbit for reusable travel between Earth orbit and a lunar orbit. The outfitting of the external tank includes the adding of an engine, an electrical system, a communication system, a guidance system, an aerobraking device, and a plurality of interconnected fluid storage tanks to the hydrogen and oxygen tanks of the external tank. The external tank is then propelled to lunar orbit the first time using Earth based propellant. In lunar orbit, the storage tanks are filled with the lunar generated fluid with the remainder tank volumes filled with lunar generated liquid oxygen and hydrogen which serve as propellants for returning the tank to Earth orbit where the fluid is off-loaded. The remaining lunar generated oxygen and hydrogen is then sufficient to return the external tank to lunar orbit so that a subsequent cycle of fluid delivery is repeated. A space station in a higher Earth orbit is preferably used to outfit the external tank, and a lunar node in lunar orbit is used to store and transfer the fluid and liquid oxygen and hydrogen to the external tank. The lunar generated fluid is preferably 3He.


This liquid Cargo Transport is a version of the Aquila. An Aquila was launched from the Marshall Islands to the moon TWO MONTHS before Apollo 11 carried Buzz Aldrin to the Moon...

What is the Aquila? Read THIS carefully

Aquila is built by Starcraft Boosters....

And finally... a private note from one of the other three people who hold those mineral rights...



Your comment on 'liquifying' minerals on the moon is 'right on time'. Our group, presently, is engaged in deep discussion as to modifying the minerals to be harvested, and liquifying (H3, for example) is/has been the subject of much heated discussion. Actually, I suggested (to our group) not so much 'liquifying' ...but 'changing the state' . If you look at some of my patents...you'll note that in these I teach 'change of state' (from liquid to a gas, for example) to accomplish some desired result: Entropy vs Enthalpy, for example. The discussions continue as of this writing, with all suggestions being considered by our group (and others) prior to making recommendations to those within and outside our group.

On the mining-thing. I can only state that in the broadest of senses mining operations have taken place on the lunar surface and are presently being conducted on Mars (and continue on the Moon). Although the use of terminology, 'mining' has been downplayed (by NASA) and there exists an 'internal memo' .

Use of terminology, e.g., 'mining', could be considered (by some countries) to constitute a violation of the International Space Treaty. Thus, NASA is real-careful about use of terminology that could be considered a breach of 'Policy and Protocol'. I can give you this stuff as it's 'public information'. You have to look between the spaces/lines for more info and draw your own conclusions.






Seems India's former President Abdul Kalam was right when he said "I believe that the moon cannot be left to a few countries."



So you really think that with all that going on that Space Command and the NAVY are going to let ANYONE else (save the Russians who are our partners) have a 'piece of the action'



That Marshall Island launch facility? US ARMY/Space and Missile Defense Command...

The same people who brought the NAZI scientists to America in Operation Paperclip

The same people who worked with Von Braun and General Trudeau on a moon base project to be completed in 1962

SPACE COMMAND
General Kevin P. Chilton
Commander, Air Force Space Command

"The establishment of Space Command is a crucial milestone in
the evolution of military space operations. Space is a place--like
land, sea, and air--a theater of operations. And it was just a matter
of time until space was treated as such."
~ General James V. Hartinger, 1 September 1982



Beginning in the mid-1980s, concurrent with the development of space operations and space engineering curricula at the Naval Postgraduate School, the Navy began “coding” officers as space subspecialists. As space subspecialty codes were then assigned to particular officers’ billets on numbered Fleet staffs and at commands ashore, the service began assigning Navy members with matching codes to those positions. More recently, the Navy has begun efforts to build a cadre of “space smart” officers, enlisted personnel and civilian employees.

The Naval Space Cadre is composed of active-duty and reserve Navy and Marine Corps officers and enlisted personnel, along with Navy civilian employees from a wide range of career fields who meet mandatory education, training and experience standards established for a particular certification level. The Navy Space Cadre is a distinct body of expertise horizontally and vertically integrated within Navy and Marine Corps active duty, reserves and civilian employee communities organized to operationalize space

Initial identification of the cadre began in mid-2001 with the standup of the Naval Space Cadre Working Group and culminated in a naval message (NAVADMIN 201/03 DTG211435Z JUL 03) announcing the first 700 officer members of the cadre. These officers were identified by the subspecialty codes of 6206, Space Systems Operations, and 5500, Space Systems Engineering or by the additional qualification designator of VS1, VS2, VS3 or VS4. Identification of enlisted and civilian cadre members is more challenging, as these groups do not have specif?ic space identifiers like the officers do.

Approximately 265 billets are currently identified as space billets. These jobs are in Navy, joint and National Security Space organizations. Space cadre members are currently assigned throughout the National Security Space arena, including the National Reconnaissance Office, National Security Space Architect, National Security Space Integration, MILSATCOM Joint Program Office, as well as in all Navy organizations that deal with space.

After going through all that stuff, it is fairly certain now that this century is really going to be interesting as regards the fight for the new frontier.


International agreements and protocols for peaceful uses of space resources! How boring!!
Let the war drums roll!!

Wow!
man, you're a darn walking encyclopedia!!
I wonder why you haven't been made an SME as yet? Or a Doc Archivist? Mind blowing stuff!


But there's a catch here. He3 needs fusion reactors that are only on the drawing board as of now. ITER, a fusion power technology demonstrator is being built by the European Union (represented by EURATOM), Japan, the People´s Republic of China, India, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation and the USA.

To be ready to go on steam by 2020, the ITER aims to demonstrate the scientific and technical feasibility of fusion power. A technology demonstrater only. Once the design is validated, the actual project will commence. The program is anticipated to last for 30 years — 10 for construction, and 20 of operation.

That's really long term stuff. In the meanwhile suppose we discover 'zero point' energy? What happens to the billions spent for HE3 retrieval? Of course, this ZPE is just speculation as of now, but who knows?

So would HE3 extraction be worth it?


Cheers!

Zorgon: This island:

Is it located in the Pacific? I ask because I randomly spotted an island not too dissimilar to the one picture on google earth but buggered if I could find it again.

Do you have anymore information on it?



Sorry to go off topic Mike.

warning this link will not work in all locations outside the US

There is an interesting note on their site...



Wake Island, located 1,100 kilometers north of the Kwajalein Atoll, is a functional adjunct to RTS, providing a launch site for intermediate range NMD and TMD target missiles. Program requirements, mission planning and implementation, and logistics support are coordinated through the Reagan Test Site.


Funny thing is when you go there by google Earth its deserted...

Ah awesome, cheers Mike.

Turns out it was another one, I just spent a bit of time to find it...and I have!
no doubt you know about this one as well but just in case you don't:



Coordinates: 16°43'29.49"N 169°32'21.17"W

And a bit of info:


Johnston Atoll Airport is located on the Johnston Atoll in the United States Minor Outlying Islands, in the Pacific Ocean several hundred kilometers southwest of Hawaii. While an active U.S. military facility during the 20th century, the airport was shut down in 2005 and the airstrip is not maintained; it is now used only in emergencies.


I wonder if it really is shut down?

Anywho...back to Chandrayaan

Cheers Zorgon, I got the site working, pretty good spot to launch rockets without being bothered isn't?

An article from The Hindu:

Manned mission will raise prowess: ISRO chief

Interesting excerpts:


“The Moon’s atmosphere is very volatile and on the very first day, there was a sudden temperature variation of 10 degrees. This could to some extent affect the sophisticated electronics components on the Moon Impact Probe,”



“Only 3 per cent of the budget allocation to ISRO is being used for such advanced research. Eighty-five per cent of our budget is being utilised for developing facilities required to enhance the standard of living of common people in India,”

Thanks sentinel for pinting this out!

Now this here is getting pretty interesting! According to the chief of India's Chandrayaan Moon probe:


“The Moon’s atmosphere is very volatile and on the very first day, there was a sudden temperature variation of 10 degrees. This could to some extent affect the sophisticated electronics components on the Moon Impact Probe,”


Two points to note:

1. The Moon's atmosphere is very volatile.
2. There was a sudden temperature variation of 10 degrees!!

Now what does this actually translate to? An atmosphere on the Moon, not as tenuous as previously thought? If there's an atmosphere, then there has to be sufficient gravity too!

Nice! So my thread The Big NASA-Military Cover-up On Gravity And Atmosphere On The Moon! is being validated!!


Cheers!

Good point about the translation. We've been hearing the term atmosphere on various occasions from The Hindu. I think it's been used in the sense of environment.

If you take the term atmosphere literally, you must take the word volatile literally. So that means the atmosphere is explosive? Or that it evaporates easily? The former is scary, the latter tells us it shouldn't be there after millions of years.

Read it this way and it makes sense: The moon's environment is very variable, the temperature varies a lot. The temperature changes are rough on our equipment.

The "atmosphere" of the moon is tenuous in the extreme. The gravity of the moon is about 1/6th that of Earth.
