The Moon For Asteroid Mining
I had no idea water has been discovered on the moon. Well, that makes many things possible. I think the moon would be a great place to create a station from where to go for robotic asteroid mining. There is such abundance of precious metals on the asteroids, the harvest will more than pay for the costs. As for creating stations on the moon and Mars, you just need enough energy and metals to be able to build stations perhaps through 3D printing. I think there is a tipping point, and boom, suddenly a station on the moon is no big deal. Me personally, I don't want to go. I am happy on earth.
