Yeah, bet my left ball that NASA will never go to the moon and neither will anyone else.
that would be stupid, you'd loose your left ball considering its already planned. We're just trying to speed up the process at this point. So go ahead an cut your left ball off
actually go ahead an cut it off now.
What i get from the article is that they are mining in order to support a colony, not to bring back anything from the moon, that would be incredibly unprofitable.
hopefully that would lead to bring it back Helium 3 back. Fusion power development on that shit
Why can't they just hook up a zip line from the moon to here and send/receive supplies/people that way
Variable orbit distance aside from materials. Might be tidally locked, but unless you can hold it at one distance, you're gonna have a bad time.
Maybe Trump should stop cutting NASA's budget if he wants to get information from them. Fucking asshole.
I wonder which studio they will go with.
I believe it's only occluded from our viewpoint, not the sun's.
That said, it's gonna reek of weed too.
That's a common misconception. The Outer Space Treaty was established back in the Cold War for an entire different ourpose: prohibiting everyone from putting weapons of mass destruction in orbit, or claiming any celestial bodies (namely the Moon) for themselves and build military bases on there.
Fast forward half a century. Peaceful endeavors such as mining celestial bodies (the Moon or any of the many mineral-rich asteroids flying around our solar system) for natural resources or starting a civilian colony on other planets (such as Mars) for scientific researches are being opposed by absolutely no one.
In fact, if we don't act fast, the Chinese Space Agency gonna have a leg up in this game. They already came up with the frameworks while NASA is still looking for a Shuttle replacement.
Personally, I think the OST needs to be updated from its original military texts to provide further guidelines for all this civiliant stuff, now that the private sector is taking over space travel big time.
If the rest of the world has a problem with it then they should stop being poor.
What you say? Blue skies on Mars?
but but trickle down economics
The OST also stops any individual country from claiming ownership of a celestial body. In order to mine commercially, land ownership is like the absolute base of things you have to have. That can't be established on the moon unless it's a collaborative effort where signatories to the OST agree on joint ownership. One country attempting to claim a section of the moon when nobody else is there is basically giving them carte blanche access to the entirety of the moon. Repeat after me. Not. Gonna. Happen. Read the treaty yourself.
The exploration and use of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, shall be carried out for the benefit and in the interests of all countries, irrespective of their degree of economic or scientific development, and shall be the province of all mankind.
Outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, shall be free for exploration and use by all States without discrimination of any kind, on a basis of equality and in accordance with international law, and there shall be free access to all areas of celestial bodies.
There shall be freedom of scientific investigation in outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, and States shall facilitate and encourage international co-operation in such investigation.
Outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, is not subject to national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means.
In the exploration and use of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, States Parties to the Treaty shall be guided by the principle of co-operation and mutual assistance and shall conduct all their activities in outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, with due regard to the corresponding interests of all other States Parties to the Treaty. States Parties to the Treaty shall pursue studies of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, and conduct exploration of them so as to avoid their harmful contamination and also adverse changes in the environment of the earth resulting from the introduction of extraterrestrial matter and, where necessary, shall adopt appropriate measures for this purpose. If a State Party to the Treaty has reason to believe that an activity or experiment planned by it or its nationals in outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, would cause potentially harmful interference with activities of other States Parties in the peaceful exploration and use of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, it shall undertake appropriate international consultations before proceeding with any such activity or experiment. A State Party to the Treaty which has reason to believe that an activity or experiment planned by another State Party in outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, would cause potentially harmful interference with activities in the peaceful exploration and use of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, may request consultation concerning the activity or experiment.
I wonder what Flat Earthers think about this.
i dont think we should still be calling them REM as they arent on earf
rare earth metals? aka REM....
