Could the moon fuel Earth for 10,000 years?

August 5, 2014

Helium 3 in dumped on moon’s surface in vast quantities by solar winds. The rare helium isotope could power clean fusion plants back on Earth It could be extracted from the moon by heating the lunar dust to 600°C Astronauts would then shuttle the nonradioactive material back to Earth  While China has expressed an interest, it has yet to outline concrete plans about how it would mine the moon for helium.

    The only fusion energy generator Earth needs is already in operation 93 million miles away. IF it were to go critical and explode, there is NO way we could escape it’s damage. and someone has the gall to advocate that a micro star be created on Earth itself??? Someone needs to get a real education, one not provided by fools and charlatans seeking only to enhance their own personal wealth.
