Now this is what I'm talking about. A group of private companies headed up by Moon Express has finally gotten permission from the FAA to start seriously planning to mine the moon for all it's worth.
Countries like the US, China, India, Russia, plus the EU all want to cash in on the wealth of elements there, so expect the race to start mining operation to be very competitive. Also, the plan is to establish a fuel depot for deeper space exploration so ships don't have to heave all that fuel up out of Earth gravity.
A commercial space war for the moon.....that's exciting!
