NASA is looking for private companies to help mine the moon

NASA has launched an effort to pay companies to mine resources on the moon, announcing it would buy from them rocks, dirt and other lunar materials. NASA Administrator clarified that the announcement would not violate a 1967 treaty that holds that celestial bodies and space are exempt from national claims of ownership. NASA said it views the mined resources as the property of the company.

I'm not sure lunar mining will be a serious thing until someone comes up with a better way to get there than the same brute force rockets they've been using since the fifties.

So let me get this straight, because no government can "legally" mine the lunar surface, so, insted the American government is going to pay private industry (Musk), to go through the rigmarole of getting mining equipment to the moon, then returning with, i can only imagine, vast quantities of rocks and shit back to Earth to then sell back to the government, who then takes ownership of it and can do with it what they will?

But nobody has ever been to the moon, watch “A funny thing happened on the way to the moon” by Bart Sibrel.
