Isn't helium-3 only useful if you have fusion plants? If so, that's probably why, since we don't have that. Still this is good news. It gives us
more space exploration experience and starts us on the path to mining asteroids for the resources, which will be a big boost to more exploration and
limiting the damage we do to our own planet for resources.
