Sign me up. I already mine on earth, the moon sounds like a good time

Me too. I’m totally game. I cannot fathom the mass of the equipment that will be needed to move material on the moon. To get the traction on a body that has .17 the amount of gravity of the earth your gonna need the mass. But then again the material will be light.

Pbb question of the day would a loader work if placed on the moon? Other than the obvious it needs air to run. Would it develop enough traction to fill a bucket of material?

Our money is not based on gold. We went of the gold standard in 1971. Thank Tricky Dicky for that.


thats an astronomical amount of over simplification.

they are going to end us.

Mining the moon will be easy, to do in a basement studio somewhere in Hollywood. May have to use a big studio, but add In some CGI magic and we'll be doing it in no time.

In John Ringo's "Troy rising" series his main character uses sunlight collected with mirrors in space to melt asteroids (And as you might guess the greenys have fit) he keeps adding bigger and more mirrors bouncing sunlight and focusing it more and more till he has a tightly focused beam of focused light in the gigawatt plus range to drive off the hostile aliens

The rumor was that one of the reasons JFK was killed is he was going to put us back on the gold standard and that was before Nixon was elected :confused:
