NASA has been redirected to accelerate moon exploration and put astronauts back on the Moon by 2024. Space agencies and private companies around the world are in a race for scientific exploration, national prestige, national security, and huge profits that could come from harvesting the Moon’s natural resources, including safe nuclear fusion fuel that could potentially control global warming and end the energy crisis on Earth.
Kenneth Bechis takes us skyward to look at the possibilities, the risks, and the benefits of winning the space race back to the Moon.
