Buzz Aldrin Dreams of Mars
Oct, 19 2010
Fox News ?
By: Jeremy A. Kaplan

ATTN Purposes

Aldrin endorses the formation of an International Lunar Development Corporation to begin commercial enterprises on the moon. And a broad collation of governments — Russia, China, India, the U.S., and others — should form this quasigovernmental organization, which would help private enterprises capitalize on the lunar resources. Together, these nations can build that lunar gas station.

There are real commercial activities that private enterprises could develop on the moon as well: Helium 3 can be mined, and heavy metal meteorites could be a source of rare earth metals. And the presence of water ice would make great rocket fuel — and rocket fuel is gets us to Mars. Aldrin thinks that base could form part of a transportation infrastructure that would enable us to get to near Earth objects such as asteroids, Martian moon Phobos, even Mars itself and beyond.

What Phobos ? The Same guy - Buzz Aldrin- that talked about a Monolith on Phobos while back...
if im not mistaken, obviously he knows something that we don't ... and Buzz Aldrin has been in Space and on the Moon so who else besides the Other Astronauts that landed on the Moon can say for sure that we are able to put a base on a moon .. Old Buzz's Time Clock is running out as he is in his 80s!
He will not be able to see his Dream of having a Lunar or an Martian Phobos =Lunar Base if something doesnt happen soon or is being done now ? LOL ..

I guessing why China India Japan is having interest in Space exploration & going to the moon ..
Its a Space Race for the New OIL Helium 3 on the Moon ? & the Mining Minerals and Metals on MARS ? and Oil on Mars ? Just in case there was Once Life on Mars getting that Martian Fossil Fuels
My Apology for the last comment !

The space legend, who is launching a new think tank called U.S.S. Enterprise — which stands for Unified, Strategic, Space Enterprise — believes NASA should think about all of the planets for the most efficient travel across the solar system. And a key item for America should be a permanent base on Phobos.

Space transportation for a Lunar Resource Base

Sounds Familiar ? It does to me ! Is It All About Helium 3 ?

Here from another thread that was from what i thought of... the Lunar Resource Base ! 6013.pdf

Zorgons View of the Lunar Resource Base

Let's see if its plausible to Build a Base on the Moon ( from Planning, Testing, Financial )
