Did you know that the US and 5 other nations have definite plans to mine the moon for helium3 soon?

One private US company, Moon Express, will be on the moon by the end of 2014. Russia wants to be mining by 2020. The US wants a permanent base and mining facility by 2024. All of this so that Helium-3 can be sent back to earth to become the solution for our energy and pollution problems. Should we mine the moon? What are the positives and negatives?

    pippap, We will be hearing lots of opinions in the future about this and I am sure the concern you have mentioned will be well represented. That was my first reaction as well, but at this point I'll watch and listen for more info.
