Are we in a space race for cosmic resources? 🔭☄️🚀🌕
On the sixth episode of "Our Future, Transformed," astrophysicist Hakeem Oluseyi speaks with George Mason University President Gregory Washington about how the effort to exploit cosmic resources has geopolitical implications, and why the United States had to start from scratch in its attempt to return to the Moon. 💚💛
"For billions of years, the sun has been depositing helium-3 in the lunar regolith. Maybe we could go to the Moon and mine the helium-3. And now we also know there’s water on the moon, right? So the key thing is our technology and our aspirations have come to a level where just as the United States has outposts around the world that make it easier to get where you want to go, the Moon could be that for Earth.” -Oluseyi
