Why would they bother? There's plenty down here.

Since China's latest stunt trying to lock the market there have been over a dozen extraction and processing facilities put into development in Canada, the USA, Vietnam, Thailand, Mongolia, Russia, Australia, Greenland, India, South Africa... to say nothing of the growing rare earth recycling industry.

Hi,

Is this about mining on the moon for rare earths elements? Because China is blocking the export of his earth elements? I found it on this website: www.space.com...
I thinkt it is strange because i thought the moon was hollow, didnt know it was a source for mining...


Grtz

It's almost certainly a load of crap. With the exception of promethium, rare earth elements aren't actually that rare; the name is a bit of a misnomer. It would be like going to the moon to find water to bring home to drink.
